Focus & Homages / Bob Byington

Premier latinoamericana

This is the story of the unlikely rehabilitation of a sex offender who is released on parole and tries to reinsert himself into society. 

What makes someone become a sex offender in Austin, Texas, actually ceases to matter: once you go on record, you’re already the bearer of today’s scarlet letter. This mockumentary follows the life of an ex-convict for sex crimes and his days on probation, in which he must introduce himself in the neighborhood, attend group therapy sessions and do community service, always in the company of some unbelievable characters. With the appearance of a few icons of the mumblecore generation like Richard Linklater and Andrew Bujalski, the main challenge of this antihero will be to build empathy with his environment or, at least, with the very producers of the film; even though humor isn’t something that’s always well-received.
