Director: Tommy Swerdlow

Additional Credits: Writers: TJ Bowen and Tommy Swerdlow, Producers: Lee Buckley, John De Menil, Daren Hicks, and Clay Reed, Editors: Anisha Acharya, Lee Buckley, James Long, and Nathaniel Park, Cinematographers: John De Menil and Warren Hansen


Things grow more and more desperate, and ridiculous, as three heroin addicts drive all over Los Angeles in search of what they need. Tommy, Blake, and TJ have their day all sorted out. Until they don’t. When their dealer suddenly abandons them, these three heroin addicts criss-cross Los Angeles searching for an alternate source of relief. Along the way they debate increasingly reckless options for securing a new stash. It’s not long before debate becomes action. Director-actor-writer Tommy Swedlow's feature film debut is a must-see road movie through the less glamorous side of Tinsel Town, and a poignant look at a motley crew of its inhabitants.

Director's Bio

Tommy Swerdlow is a self-expresser from the old school. He’s a poet-screenwriter-actor-director-teacher, whatever he can get his hands on. He wrote a movie called Cool Runnings that people seemed to like, and a few others as well, including Little Giants and Snow Dogs. Swerdlow was the uncredited first writer on the movie Shrek and came up with the “Donkey.” He does not receive residuals; it is a source of great pain and trauma. 


Swerdlow also created the television series Brutally Normal with his old partner Michael Goldberg. It aired on the WB in 2000. You never saw it, but it was good. Swerdlow was a stalwart on the briefly thriving LA poetry scene of the early ‘90s. His poetry CD “Prisoner Of The Gifted Sleep” was released on New Alliance records, and poems are featured on various compilation CDs and in a lot of magazines. He considers himself a poet first and foremost, which is pretty obnoxious but has some truth to it. Swerdlow’s from Long Island but his did his essential years 13-21 in New York City. 


He moved to LA in 1983 when it was still all burgers and pie and has lived here ever since. He is the founder of the genre known as “mythoir,” but nobody knows it yet. His movie, A Thousand Junkies, which  co-wrote wrote, directed, and co-stars in will be released in 2017. He is also 100 pages into his first novel and wants everyone to know that he’s done fucking around.


Lastly,  and most importantly, he has a pension from the Writers Guild and people get a kick out of him.
