Synopsis: The timely post-apocalyptic comedy Canned Peaches In Syrup is set in a seemingly absurd and inconvenient future where global warming has reduced the planet to a desert wasteland, peopled by dwindling tribes of vegetarians and cannibals. Ma, Pa and Julie wander the blighted landscape in search of vegetable sustenance; but when the malicious prophet, Blind Bastard shows up and discovers they are the guardians of the very last can of fruit known to mankind, his greed sends cannibal Rog into their camp, triggering a Romeo and Juliet journey that spirals dangerously into passion, mayhem and destruction beneath the fractured sky of a doomed world.
Cast Size: 5 Males, 3 Females
