It’s a rarity when a film can make you see red with rage, but also make you laugh out loud and filmmaker Daniel Sorochkin has done just that with his latest romantic comedy.

A play on the implications of “Check please!” and true to its title, Sorochkin’s film is sure to cause you to want to hurry out of the restaurant – especially after the debacle that ensues. This worst case scenario comedy follows a botched marriage proposal wherein Ben plans to propose to his long time girlfriend, Laura, only to find out that his ring was mistakenly sent to the wrong table – and he can’t get it back.

Written and directed by Daniel Sorochkin
Producers: Reut Elimelech and Helena Emmanuel
Cinematographer: Oren Soffer
Editor: Yonatan Weinstein
Sound Design: Rose Seyfried
Original Music: Roded Leviathan

Story itself centers around Albert who’s bullied at school and avoids social interactions with the girls. His only friend is a tortoise. He finds inspiration from the animal kingdom and starts behaving like an alpha male in order to stop the bullying and get the girl.
