True West examines the relationship between Austin, a screenwriter, and his older brother Lee. It is set in the kitchen of their mother's home. Austin is housesitting while their mother is in Alaska, and there he is confronted by his brother, who proceeds to bully his way into staying at the house and using Austin's car. In addition, the screenplay which Austin is pitching to his connection in Hollywood somehow gets taken over by the pushy con-man tactics of Lee, and the brothers find themselves forced to cooperate in the creation of a story that will make or break both their lives. In the process, the conflict between the brothers creates a heated situation in which their roles as successful family man and nomadic drifter are somehow reversed, and each man finds himself admitting that he had somehow always wished he were in the other's shoes.
Starring: Austin Amelio, Juston Street, Michael Davis, & Jacqueline Lies.
