Billed as a love letter to the classic Quentin Tarantino pic and the history of cinema as a whole, the film is based on Turkiewicz’ short of the same name, which he wrote and directed at the height of the Covid pandemic in 2020. It follows friends Jonathan (Rudnitsky), Elizabeth (David) and Steve (Soni) as they attempt to steal Tarantino’s personal 35mm print of Pulp Fiction. Along the way, their kooky therapist, Dr. Mendelbaum (Alexander), finds himself drawn into the heist, adding both humor and unexpected twists to the story.
