Carol is a lawyer who believes that she has a fatal heart condition. With unpaid college loans and no life insurance, she fears for the welfare of her fifteen year-old son and her underemployed husband.

The Bigger Man  | Open: 06/29/05 Close: 07/23/05
Len, a former thief and all-around screw-up, has serious doubts about the upcoming wedding of his ex-girfriend. The night before the ceremony, while sharing a hotel room with his drug addict buddy, Len is certain that something is not quite right about the entire event. He may not be the Best Man, but can he be The Bigger Man? Pitting urban nihilism against surban optomisism, this off-kiler love story is played out in soggy hotel rooms, with paranoid wedding guests, an aggrivessibly friendly host and uncertain danger lurking at every turn
