What Weighs Us Down  (2017)

Director:  Bobby Thompson

Writer:  Bobby Thompson

Genre:  Drama


Josh is a young man in his twenties experiencing a recent rash of trouble. He loses his warehouse job; he is out-of-step with the lives his old friends are embarking upon; and his long term relationship with girlfriend Angie collapses in a sudden and unexpected way. Josh's growing depression, loneliness, and sense of abandonment are only increased by the presence of his Mom's new ex-cop boyfriend Alan, a menacing bully who won't leave him alone. Feeling increasingly trapped and resorting to petty crime to help support a burgeoning opiate addiction, Josh feels himself slipping further and further away from the happiness and contentment he so desperately desires.  Produced in collaboration with Comfort Food Films.
