Pushing thirty and working a thankless office job, Internet dating is one more routine in Ron Hogan's well-ordered life. Until he meets Stacy, a fellow working stiff who disarms him by speaking the language of his loneliest moments. Featuring a score by acclaimed jazz composer John Medeski, AUDREY THE TRAINWRECK is Frank V. Ross's 6th feature film, an exploration of what might happen if one man's silent desperation got a little bit louder. (Indiegogo)
