“I’m not crazy, I’m a chainsaw juggler”
A man goes to see a doctor about a chronic headache. A routine visit takes an unexpected turn, when the patient claims to be a chainsaw juggler on his way to North Korea, where he is meant to perform at the deceased dictator Kim Il-Sung’s birthday party.
“Chainsaw Juggler” is promptly escorted to a mental asylum, where he is diagnosed with acute psychosis and put on heavy medication. After meeting his fellow drugged-out patients and fearing that he is going to miss his flight to North Korea, he decides to escape.
Based on a true story.
We the filmmakers fell in love with the story of the Chainsaw Juggler and want to expand it into a feature film, where the Juggler has to flee through Russia to make it to his big gig in North Korea.
