A joint presentation of the Shuswap Film Society and Salmar Cinemas.

Casey (Jessie Eisenberg) is a meek bookkeeper who is the victim of a random attack. This leads him to join a dojo to learn how to protect himself. His world is unrealistically lonely, which is why he becomes so enthralled with his new path of hyper masculinity. This is where the movie comes to the intrinsic teaching: learning and what it means to be strong.

The Shuswap Film Society will be your special hosts on Friday and Saturday evenings.
