"If you don't have your own plan, you'll damn sure be a part of someone else's." That quote kicks off the first of multiple story lines, in the crime ensemble "Bubblegum & Broken Fingers." This character-driven collage of sex, violence and survival is equal parts western, gangster and love stories. We follow the journey of a mysterious silver briefcase and witness the havoc it brings each new owner. The seemingly unrelated stories continuously collide throughout for multiple plot twists. Rodney, a young mob bag-man tries to leave his life of crime but his partner Dominic has other plans. German tourists bite off more than they can chew. A tiny mute hitch hiker has a day she'll never forget. Blix, an escapee from a federal prison, goes on a destructive rampage. Playboy Doctor Sean Steele puts his life in jeopardy when he thinks with the wrong head. FBI agent Hampton and U.S. Marshal Yamato ruthlessly compete for the same arrest. These stories of dysfunction all smash together for a final resolution in the end. "Bubblegum & Broken Fingers" is a bizarre trip around the block that will leave you lifetimes away from where you started.
