WRISTCUTTERS – A LOVE STORY provides entry into a quirky universe that’s both strangely familiar and full of surprises. It’s an afterlife of menial jobs, dingy bars, bad transportation and old jukeboxes. After arriving to the afterlife – Zia (Fugit) an aimless but amiable young man, lands a job at Kamikaze Pizzeria and learns that things are not so different from his previous life, just a little bit worse.
Things look up when Zia discovers that his dream girl, Desiree, has also committed suicide. As he takes a journey to find the love of his life, Zia discovers two friends—the clever, oddly charming Russian rocker and a sexy intelligent ingénue who is determined to prove she is in the after-life by a cruel mistake. Together, in a rickety orange station wagon held together by masking tape —this impromptu family hits the road—only to meet up with wonderful Kneller who shepherds them through the ultimate version of Utopia.
Filled with unexpected miracles and absurdist humor, Wristcutters – A Love Story celebrates how precious and unexpected one’s life truly is.
