Pain Staking

It was a wonderful day, the sun shone, the birds chirped... until the best-friend-asking-for-a-favor from hell showed up. What starts as social drama about cancer quickly slips towards over the top, surreal dramedy. If you feel uncomfortable laughing at no laughing matter, we did our job: your discomfort is our pleasure.
