SYNOPSIS

Flushing Flush is a dramatic comedy about bizarre Eugene, his happy ending masseuse Amy, and the unlikely bond formed between them when Eugene is fooled into helping Amy escape sex slavery.

The two have extremely distorted views of reality and are able to find comfort in one another. As their relationship grows, Amy regrets taking advantage of Eugene. She realizes that she has put him in serious danger and must make a big choice in order to find their happy ending...

CHARACTERS

Eugene is socially awkward, but smart. Being extremely left brained and mathematical he sees the world with numbers and logic. He has a lot of trouble seeing where other people are coming from and comes across as harsh and insensitive. This makes him hesitant to engage strangers. He is a coward but excuses himself with logic and reason.

Amy’s personality is a strange dichotomy of the innocent act she plays to appeal to her customers, and the guarded woman who has lived through hell during her life as a sex slave. 

FUNDS

We are raising money to rent first rate camera, grip & lighting equipment, pay for location fees, production design, post production, and music rights.

Risks and challenges

Our most significant challenge is casting Chinese speaking extras and bit roles. Thankfully, members of the crew speak Mandarin.
