An effective, if improbable spoof. Worth watching.

Part comedy, part tragedy, the story gives us a look at reality that we may not want to look at. Still, this is a pretty good production, and piques enough interest that we wish there were more resolution to the story.

Dead-eye casting makes this little slice-of-life dramedy tasty and satisfying. Yes, this is the way the starving ne-er-do-wells of the world stand in awe of the obliviousness of the self-absorbed. And you think a central government will fix everything that's wrong with this picture? Great short film, with barely a wrong note.

Ok but end too predictable
