"I never wanted to be a teacher or lawyer. I never wanted to be anything, really."
Stuck working mind-numbing temp jobs, Penny Nichols yearns to break free from the rut she's found herself in. When, by chance, she falls in with a group of misfits making a no-budget horror movie called "Blood Wedding," everything goes sideways. Soon, her days are overrun with gory props, failed Shakespearean actors, a horny cameraman, and a disappearing director. Somehow, Penny must hold it all together and keep the production from coming apart at the seams.
This hilarious original graphic novel is a loving tribute to the chaos and camaraderie of DIY filmmaking, and the ways we find our future - and our family - in the unlikeliest of places.
