Plot: Having completed his first two films which includes THEY KILLED MY CAT, Elliot “White Lightning” Scott is committed to becoming the next Chuck Norris with his ultimate low-budget karate epic: BLOOD FIGHT. This surreal documentary captures two years in the lives of a passionate amateur filmmaker, his supportive girlfriend Linda, and their outrageous cast—all trying to realize their dreams of movie stardom. As Elliot retreats into his world of make-believe, Linda struggles to keep him grounded and patiently waits for him to propose. With everyone’s hopes pinned on Elliot, this comedic-drama unfolds into a shocking and complex examination of how we lie to ourselves to follow our dreams at any cost.
