Scumbag is about a young hipster wannabe-superstar dj, Phil, who takes on a day job at a telemarketing company, working with mental patients, ex-prisoners, drug addicts and murderers. The time on his life begins to tick as he battles addiction, fights the law and society while trying to maintain the only sane thing left in his life, his girlfriend. This is an existential coming-of-age, dramatic dark comedy which satirizes teen angst and questions the universe ‘why am I here?’ Wolf of Wall Street meets Gummo makes a Breakfast Club that today’s youth can relate to with yet a nod to the 90’s. It is loosely based on an office from Toronto that was eventually shut down by the Feds for fraud.
