Fresh from the Sundance Midnight section, this is the tragic true story of two best friends and low-end porn actors Steve Driver and Tom Dong, who sought fame but gained infamy in a connection with a murder in 2010 at a San Fernando Valley porn company’s warehouse, where Driver was living at the time. Sword play (which has a dual meaning here), bloodshed, and a tragic standoff with police are all part of the infamy that belong to these two mopes (slang for a wannabe porn star).
