Duration: 1hr 49min
Emile Brockton enjoys TV, chicken pot pies, and well, not much else. His life has become a meaningless procession of banal activities that prompt him to spice things up the only way he can devise: by killing himself. However, the road to suicide is filled with distractions, and these create the ultimate conundrum for him. It turns out there's quite a market for autobiographical snuff flicks, and Emile's new acquaintance from work (who is a few tacos shy of a combo plate) decides to document his demise. Suddenly, everything that was unbearably dull about his life is the object of attention and wonder. All the excitement may be just the thing to give his life meaning again. But if he doesn't kill himself, everything will revert to the way it was. What's a guy to do?
