Uncle John

Friday, March 20
10:00PM - 11:53PM

Alamo Lamar C
1120 S Lamar Blvd


Dutch, a small town bully turned born again Christian, has gone missing. John, a loved member of the community, is not a suspect, but has everything to do with it. Rumors about Dutch’s fate are hot topics around town. Dutch’s younger brother, Danny, who shares the family’s bad rap, has his own theory about the mystery and it centers on John.

Meanwhile, John’s nephew, Ben, leads a life replete with snarky jokes and gourmet coffee as a Chicago graphic designer. His confused and budding relationship with his coworker, Kate, leads them on an impromptu trip north to see the town he grew up in.

They arrive just as John struggles to navigate the increasing threats from Danny’s suspicions.
