WILLY GOES WAY BACK!

Ryan Wagner

Efren Ramirez (NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, EASTBOUND & DOWN) stars as Willy, an outcast grieving the loss of his mother. He visits a mysterious doctor who offers to perform an experimental procedure on Willy, in hopes of curing his sadness. Willy breaks into his childhood home, triggering the procedure, and sending him on a surreal adventure.

You know that feeling when something is so incredibly funny, you just know it’s going to break your heart? Yeah, me too. Welcome to Willy. — Natasha Lewin (Programmer)
