Sometimes you just have to appreciate that certain things exist. This is one of those times.
In a dystopian future, a relentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park ('The FP') in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revelation." After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protégé younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again. One year later, The FP is in ruins, and JTRO must find the courage to return and restore order in a ruthless battle for revenge that can only leave one man dancing.

Commenting on their filmmaking journey, co-director/writer/star Jason Trost said “it's both exciting and bittersweet. We've been working on this movie for so long, it's almost like sending our kid off to college. But, you know... hopefully our kid makes a name for itself and doesn't piss the world off too Co-director/cinematographer Brandon Trost added, "there is no better place to release our mutant spawn into the world than with Drafthouse Films. They totally get it."
