In this double dose of bizarre B-movie comedies, a man discovers that his nice, average family is anything but normal, and a hardworking insomniac trades sleepless nights for reality-bending slumber. In Loons, Jeff Coukos's (James O'Brien) engagement opens the floodgates to unsettling family secrets. And in Cutthroats, Don Drinkwater (Alan Kennedy) cures his insomnia, but the nightmares at work still plague him.
It’s 1982, and Taeko is 27 years old, unmarried, and has lived her whole life in Tokyo.

Amidst her own personality crisis, southern housewife Evelyn Couch meets Ninny, an outgoing old woman who tells her the story of Idgie Threadgoode and Ruth Jamison, two young women who experienced hardships and love in Whistle Stop, Alabama in the 1920s.
Whilst on a short weekend getaway, Louise shoots a man who had tried to rape Thelma. Due to the incriminating circumstances, they make a run for it and thus a cross country chase ensues for the two fugitives.
