The film follows Troy Billings who is seventeen, overweight, and suicidal. Just as he's about to jump in front of a bus, he's saved by Marcus, a charming high school dropout/street musician. The two begin an uneasy friendship when Marcus enlists the musically challenged Troy to become the drummer in a new punk rock band. As Troyâ€™s relationship with Marcus grows, Troy's father becomes increasingly concerned about his son's new friendship.
The filmâ€™s release represents a unique convergence of traditional distribution, social media and the internet, bringing together ARC ENTERTAINMENT, the Vans Warped Tour, Kickstarter and TUGG.
â€œWe chose ARC, Vans Warped Tour and Tugg,â€ said Matthew Lillard, â€œbecause this is a film about the kids on the fringe â€“ the outsiders. We wanted to find a way to cut through the Hollywood machine and connect directly with those kids and let them shape the destiny of our movie. So, Tugg the Fat Kid â€“ we made this film for you. I hope you dig it.
Cinemit has partnered in the past with Tugg bringing screenings of ReGENERATION to NYC and Boston and The Loved Ones to NYC and will soon bring two more screenings including Iron Sky and Indie Game: The Movie. Stay tuned for all Tugg screenings here!
