Phil (played by writer-director Joseph Baken) is a mail carrier, and though he loves his job, he really wants to be a writer. But how does one become a creative force? Especially when you feel stuck in a rut?
Phil thinks he’s finally found the answer when an old woman on his route dies under very mysterious circumstances. Suspecting foul play, he descends into an investigatory rabbit hole, hoping to land a juicy story that will inspire his novel. But, like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Phil discovers the most important journey in uncovering truth is not an outward one – or a wild goose chase – but a quest for inner truth.
Featuring a hilarious ensemble cast that quickly takes the story in all sorts of bizarre, over-the-top directions, Mailman is a black comedy, an unexpected musical, and a modern coming-out story all wrapped in one.
Watch the trailer for Mailman below. The film is available now on Dekkoo.
