This is a Proof-of-Concept, seeking funding for feature length. The fledgling and unflappable Slade owes money to the local mobster Oily Picatto. Slade's doggie-dating business just isn't going as planned. With the help of his depressed sidekick Frankie, and down-and-out high stakes poker player Alligator Swanson, they encounter eccentric Scarlett Livingston to get the help they need...or so they thought!
