MULES is a scathing exploration of the desperation that emerges when people find themselves trapped and powerless with no clear way out.
Best friends in high school, Cindy and Crystal haven’t see each other in ten years. They reunite through social media, only to find they are both miserable and desperate to move up in the world. Holed up in the airport arrivals washroom, Crystal with a belly full of cocaine from Colombia and Cindy fearful of her violent boyfriend, the action unfolds in one single night, but changes their lives forever.
A dark comedy about poverty, friendship … and drug smuggling, MULES is a tragic journey for the two women, as well as the airport janitor, who discovers them mid-plan only to escalate the crisis.
