A man who performs as a children's birthday party clown tries to piece his life back together after being gang-raped.
The idea for the film came from art design drawn by Kevin Smith friend Walt Flanagan. It was meant to be a car decal, but Kevin saw it and loved it so much, he wanted to use it for his film company, "View Askew Productions". Kevin said he wanted to make a whole movie around the back-story for the logo, which he speculated and spit-balled with Flanagan and friend Bryan Johnson outside the Quik Stop one night. With other project pre-occupying Kevin, Bryan asked if he could make the film. Kevin agreed.
You know what you are, William? A whole lot of nothing.
Near the end, when Ed Fanelli dies of heart failure, we can see him moving and breathing even as Will/Flappy kicks him.
