The film debuted at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and was recently acquired by Virgil Films. You too can soon experience the power of The Banana.

Per the film’s official synopsis, it “follows a unique group of social outcasts who partake in an unfamiliar world of amateur wrestling via SSP Wrestling (Seattle Semi-Pro Wrestling.) By day they are chefs, hairdressers, and delivery men, but by night these ‘cabaret combatants’ put on raunchy matches while rabid fans chant obscenities and hurl beer cans at their heads. The de-facto spokesman of the wrestling group and ‘hero’ is one Josh Black a.k.a. ‘Ronald McFondle,’ followed by equally entertaining Eddie Van Glam.”

But, wait! What of The Banana? Not to worry, as the synopsis add, “It’s all fun and games until new recruit Paul Richards a.k.a. ‘The Banana’ joins up and plays the role of villain far too well. Banished from the group, he swears revenge and uses the law to try to shut SSP Wrestling down. McFondle and Van Glam must rally their troops and use every trick in the book to save their family.”
