Film Synopsis:

The Debacle is a comedy about longtime friends Vaughn (a play-it-safe hypochondriac) and Larry (a well-meaning but braggadocios “also ran”) who have never met a challenge they haven’t run from. After Vaughn abruptly loses his job of 20 years, a chance encounter with a street peddler leads to their finding themselves transported to an old west town in the 1870′s. Vaughn and Larry are suddenly thrust into situations where failure appears to be a foregone conclusion. Terrified by change and even the hint of danger, Vaughn and Larry are a given a task that must be completed within two weeks or they’ll risk never returning to their modern day reality. They work to overcome their fears and competing interests and they ultimately battle with an ill-tempered gunslinger in an effort to return home.

The Debacle is loosely based on the story of Moses and Aaron and the out of Egypt narrative. Vaughn and Larry are befriended by the town’s Reverend (Callaghan). After attending a Sunday service, Vaughn is inspired by the Reverend’s message on the life of Moses. He applies the points from the sermon to help navigate through not only the challenges he is facing in the old west but Vaughn also uses the Biblical principles to live a life free of fear. The journey requires the two friends to lead the town of Pumpkinville out of the captivity of a ruthless and powerful overlord. In working to free others, Vaughn and Larry in turn free themselves to be all that God designed them to be.

    Congratulations to your entire crew! Just saw the trailers and I think it is great. Of course I am also very prejudiced since Natalie Wood is my daughter-in-law, but anyway I really do think you have a great picture here. I certainly want to buy a DVD of it. Please let me know when they are available for purchase. Thanks again and “great job folks”… Stephen Wood
