You might say that the eponymous David is a generalist when it comes to women. Rather than specializing, why not spread the wealth among several, each with a distinct flavor of her own: say, a club-hopping party girl, a fresh-faced coed, a business-savvy lawyer, and a quiet homebody. It's a seemingly ideal arrangement - that is, unless all four unexpectedly show up at the same time. A knife is grabbed, a scuffle ensues, and, the next thing you know, David is dead. Now the four lovely accomplices are faced with the dilemma of how to dispose of the corpse - until one of them asks, "What do you expect us to do? Cut up his body and throw it in the lake?" Easier said than done... Black Harvest vet Wallace (SUNSHINE DAY, THIS IS NOT CHIRAQ) returns with his most ambitious production to date, a bawdy, bloody black comedy with a lively cast headed by Cynda Williams of MO' BETTER BLUES and ONE FALSE MOVE. DCP digital. (MR)

August 24 & 28: Director Lawrence Lee Wallace and selected members of the cast and crew are scheduled to appear for audience discussion at both screenings.
