Doom and gloom are on the way. The Y2K apocalypse can't be stopped. Abbie's older brother issues him the ultimate challenge before it goes down: beat the infamous level 256 in Pac-Man and no getting up from the couch until he does so.
Abbie’s survival story begins here; inside a rotting living room with no food or water, and a revolving door of numb-nut friends and acquaintances. It’s THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL by way of SLACKER, or FUNNY GAMES helmed by Johnny Knoxville.
"Sad and strange and defiantly gross, RELAXER is a surreal survival tale swirling with childhood trauma and Y2K paranoia... Some may find this movie unbearable; yet there’s a place for pictures that push us to the limits of forbearance. Sometimes, even the loathsome have stories worth telling." Jeannette Catsoulis.
