A short dark comedy: What would you do if you accidentally killed the boss you always wished you could kill?
About the Project:
"What if you accidentally killed the boss you always wished you could kill?"
Neecey, Nick and Sam always wished their boss would drop dead. Then one day he did. Now they have to come up with a plan before their office adversary frames them for murder.
