TEN INCH HERO
In this upbeat romantic comedy/drama, artist Piper Jones (Elisabeth Harnois, Pretty Persuasion) moves to Santa Cruz, California, in search of the young daughter she gave up for adoption at birth. She lands a job at a local sub shop, and quickly becomes entwined in the dysfunctional family of co-workers: Jen (Clea DuVall), shy and involved in an internet love affair; Tish (Danneel Harris), an over-sexed beauty determined to find that perfect ten; and the mohawked Priestly (Jensen Ackles, Supernatural), who dispenses advice to everyone, but is a master at hiding his own feelings. Balancing out the mix is shop owner Trucker (John Doe, founder of the L.A. punk band X, Roadside Prophets), an aging surfer with a crush on the new age goddess, Zo (Alice Krige) who owns the neighboring crystal store. At times heartwarming, at times irreverent, the story unfolds as the friends struggle to find love and happiness, as they discover that sometimes the hardest thing to be is yourself.
