Unicorn City (93 Min)
"Napoleon Dynamite meets Monty Python and the Holy Grail!"
"Unicorn City" follows the life of Voss (Devin McGinn), a passionate Dungeons and Dragons gamer whose life both on and off the gaming tables constantly finds him rolling a one. Banished from the realm of a table game created by local comic book shop proprietor Shadow Hawk (Jon Gries - Napoleon Dynamite), the financial pressures of actuality are all that wait to greet him. When a managerial job offer hinges on his proven ability to lead, Voss calls upon his fellow gamers to shed the shackles Shadow Hawk's tyranny and live out their fantasies in a utopia dubbed "Unicorn City." Telling only fellow gamer Marsha (Jaclyn Hales) that Unicorn City's existence is solely for potential employment, he convinces the remainder of his followers to live as their characters would. Conflict presents itself in the form of Shadow Hawk's attempts to take over the city, curious local police officers, and Marsha's romantic crush on Voss that sadly is unnoticed. Is Voss able to conquer the demons plaguing him both within and outside Unicorn City's borders? Or will his selfishness finally catch up with him, leaving him in worse shape than ever?
