Boredom and bad decisions are a part of life in far-off places like BFE. Young and old struggle to live free or die trying. Including Grampa who has a terminal illness but won't go down without a fight. His grandson Ian, on the other hand, tries to teach the old man how to live, while at the same time, catch the eye of the troubled and angelic Ellie, whose feelings for Ian may be more than mutual. The problem is, Ellie's popular boyfriend Zack, who like everyone else in this isolated town on the edge of nowhere, doesn't want to be the last virgin.
"It's a raw, unprettified tale, and it haunts you afterward." Seattle Times "An effective, shaggy-dog yarn about four lost souls trying to make their way out of a dead-end town." Filmmaker Magazine
"B.F.E. also sports a gorgeous visual aesthetic that alternately romanticizes and lays bare the dead-end nature of suburbia (think Dazed and Confused meeting the picturesque beauty of Badlands)." City Arts Magazine
