A noire-detective story about wrestling? What? In a world of fantasy, immortality and shape-shifting? Huh? That’s right folks, hold on to your ponties, because it’s going to be an amazing match!
Mike O’Brien’s theatrical debut presents audiences with a centuries-old mystery, a diabolical gambit and a missing pair of athletic high-performance ponties. What more lies ahead for Detective Clint Hacker; the Chicago Wrestling League’s toughest cop as he reunites with his rascally ex-partner Jake Trapper, his immortal and shape-shifting nemesis Bryce Dagger and his older-than-dirt father Hacker Sr.? Find out in this riotous noire-detective story, set in a fantastical pro- wrestling world of mortality, morality, snakes and revenge!
“Rectory? Damn near killed him!”
