A lonely bounty hunter finds himself in a sticky situation when his car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, with a recently kidnapped bounty still in the trunk.
Bounty Huntin' is a film that at its core is about being lonely and shut off. As someone who has struggled with making friends and being socially engaged, this was a theme that resonated with me. I think comedy is a wonderful lens through which to find catharsis, and so my goal with this film was to tell the story of two lonely men incapable of engaging with another person in any way who, by an absurd sequence of events, discover that they were exactly what the other one needed.
