What do you get when you mix a loan shark masquerading as a priest, his morally conflicted enforcer, a hopeless romantic lady-of-the-night, a silver-spoon screwup, and a nice guy who finishes last? An absurd recipe for a dark-comedy, crime-drama set during Easter.
Ice Pick is a small-time loan shark who managed to get himself into a hundred thousand dollar debt with an even bigger shark. Her name? Petula “Texas Pete” James. If she doesn’t get her money by Easter Sunday, things are going to get unpleasant for Ice. This results in a wild mission to hustle for the cash while colliding with a colorful cast of characters along the way.
