BUTTER | North American Premiere
Paul A. Kaufman | USA | 2019 | 110'
A lonely obese teenager everyone calls "Butter" is about to make history. He is going to eat himself to death live on the Internet and everyone is invited to watch. When he first makes the announcement online to his classmates Butter expects pity, insults, and possibly sheer indifference. What he gets are cheerleaders rallying around his deadly plan. Yet as their dark encouragement grows, it begins to feel a lot like popularity. But can Butter live with the fallout if he doesn't go through with his plans?
