Small Town Wisconsin

The virtual MFF2020 sensation comes home for its in-person world theatrical premiere!

The entire cast & crew are scheduled to attend premiere - director Niels Mueller (The Assassination of Richard Nixon), actors David Sullivan (Primer), Kristen Johnston (3rd Rock From the Sun), and Bill Heck (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), as well as Executive Producer Alexander Payne (multi-time Oscar-winning screenwriter and director of SidewaysElection, and About Schmidt)!

After losing a custody battle, perpetual teenager Wayne Stobierski steals his son away for one last father-son weekend to the city of their dreams - Milwaukee, Wisconsin. What's supposed to be a light-hearted adventure, transforms into a journey of profound redemption.
