Content warning:

In 2011, three middle-aged friends fed up with an ageist conservative film industry decide to take matters into their own hands to self-produce a campy out of the box murder mystery web series. What was supposed to be a fun project for this new platform called YouTube became a worldwide hit and sparked debates around queer representation, sex and body positivity - and raunchy jokes.
