Fukry is a screwball stoner rom-com set in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The film follows Ching Yazzie, a longboard craftsman, and Dawn Wilson, an aspiring performance artist set on moving to northern California for a “mime residency.” When Ching expresses his love for Dawn, burdened by the heavy emotions she pukes on him—this catapults into Dawn leaving and propelling Ching into a spiraling descent. Through the course of a long weekend involving punk rock shows, a gallery opening and some comic fighting, the characters discover their real feelings.
