For years Steve was miserable in his job as a machinist. Each day Steve would clock into his factory job and dream of a more adventurous life. Little did Steve know, the adventure of a lifetime would find him soon enough. After an impromptu trip to Eastern Europe, Steve began smuggling something so secretive, so sought after, so valuable into the United States…something that would change his life forever: PEZ dispensers. And not just any PEZ dispensers, but dispensers that weren’t even on the market yet. With the demand for these rare products on the rise from high profile collectors, Steve began making more money than he ever could have imagined. But his success came at a cost. Having made a name for himself as “The PEZ Outlaw,” Steve gained some powerful enemies. The CEO of American PEZ, also known as the “Pezident,” had Steve blacklisted, while attempting to thwart his plans at every turn. But “The PEZ Outlaw” prevailed…in his own way. A gripping documentary filled with colorful reenactments and first-hand accounts, THE PEZ OUTLAW is a wild true story of love, adventure, and following your dreams. —G.S.
