  • Goodbye Sunrise Working


Comedy. Young friends Mike and Lennie, stuck in a dead-end town in America's Midwest, play a prank on the owner of a convenience store which backfires. The only means of escaping prison is by using Lennie's grandfather as a defence lawyer, which would cost money. The boys then attempt robbery, which leaves them in even bigger trouble. Mike's white trash mother, along with her boyfriend, agrees to participate in the boys' ensuing crime sprees as long as the ill-gotten gains contribute to legal fees and Mike's college tuition.
