THERE ARE NO RATS IN ALBERTA (Buddies in Bad Times) - 2018


There’s a 400 km corridor between Saskatchewan and Alberta that is monitored closely for signs of rat infestation. Phil is a chocolate-milk enthusiast and rat hunter in search of his heart. Ricky is his eager apprentice. Stella is a high-femme dream jumper navigating past traumas. She also happens to be the Last Rat in Alberta. 
There Are No Rats In Alberta is an exploration of dreams, rats, and gender identity.
