The Buck Rules

Synopsis

The Buck Rules is a black comedy which follows the lives of five social misfits whose movie infatuated lifestyle has been thrown into turmoil by the depletion of their 'easy money' trust fund.

Hillary, Lyle, Edwin, Stevie and Ronald Mcdonald break down their choices into these options: kidnapping, illegal goods production or armed robbery. All of them must face the very things that drove them to a life in front of the television. With the quest for funds underway, we follow each group member as they attempt to complete their phase of the operation.

We meet Edwin's grandfather with his alleged Mafia links, Lyle's foul-mothed little brother, Hillary's crazy father and a traumatised Rent and Repent video shop employee named Humpty. When these characters are combined with a machine gun, an oversized grinder and an elephant cannon, the Vernon Vault's chances of keeping its assets intact are greatly reduced.
