Stupid Kid

By Sharr White

Directed by Cameron Watson

After 14 years in prison for a crime he swears he didn’t commit, Chick returns home
to find his flat-broke family under the thumb of his dangerous Unclemike.
A rollicking Gothic Western tale of a family isolated by shame,
STUPID KID explores power, guilt and the limits of maternal love.
