A workaholic architect, who has been overlooking his family in favour of his career, comes across a universal remote that allows him to perform TiVo-like functions on his life, such as pausing events or fast-forwarding over them. When the remote begins creating its own memory and choosing what to fast-forward over, the man sees how much of his personal life has passed him by and realises the importance of spending more time with his family.

Waist Deep

Action / Adventure / Gangster
Director: Vondie Curtis Hall

"I'll always come back for you," single father O2 tells his young son Junior. This parental promise is put to the test when O2 is suddenly plunged into a do-or-die situation; trying to go straight for Junior's sake, this recently paroled ex-con is forced to go back outside the law after his son is kidnapped in a carjacking. The resulting chase and shootout have left Junior in the hands of Meat, the vicious leader of the Outlaw Syndicate. O2's shady cousin Lucky tries to mediate, but is caught between criminal and family loyalties. The only person who can or will help O2 get his son back is wily street-smart hustler Coco, whose path fatefully crossed O2's just moments before the kidnapping. With the clock ticking down, the heat between O2 and Coco rises, as they become a lawbreaking couple, on an action-packed tear through Los Angeles neighbourhoods. Can they outwit the underworld, save Junior and themselves?
