Watch Trailer For ‘Hunter Gatherer’

Ashley Douglas thinks everything should fall into place when he’s released after three years in prison. When that doesn’t happen, he restarts his life with next to nothing: no friends, no lovers, no connections. All he has is a bedroom in his mom’s house, a box of treasures buried in his backyard, and a deeply ingrained need to be with Linda — his one, true love — who has moved on without him.

Ashley sees an opportunity in the form of Jeremy, an eccentric loner. They start a two-man business of dumping unwanted refrigerators for cash, which Ashley hopes will get Linda back and Jeremy hopes will help his ailing grandfather. As their partnership takes hold, a friendship flourishes — though their fates are very much still up in the air.

With HUNTER GATHERER, filmmaker Josh Locy (making his feature-length debut) crafts a bittersweet, darkly comic tale of seeking out one’s destiny — but discovering an unexpected fate along the way. Peppered with elements of the surreal and anchored by a brazen, SXSW award winning central performance by Andre Royo (“The Wire,” “Empire”) as Ashley and a breakthrough turn from newcomer George Sample III as Jeremy, HUNTER GATHERER defies expectation and will leave audiences curious long after they leave the theater.
