AT BEST DERIVATIVE: A band of fledgling criminals plan to sell the story/movie rights to a crime they have yet to commit. True crime is big nowadays. Nobody knows that better than the truest of criminals, Waffle House, and his band of ill-to-doers who have a plan to knock off the local bank on spec. All they need is an inside man, Edwin Sage, to help iron out a few of the details. Edwin, an aspiring screenwriter/bank teller, is happy to help, especially because he thinks the group's front man is a rep from Minimax looking for creative advice on how to make a big screen robbery look "real". Everyone is blissful in their ignorance until Edwin, a tinge insecure about his ability to deliver, consults his cousin, and head of the local anti-robbery task force, Max Heavy. Oppressed by the disdain of his social circle, the sheer listlessness of his existence, and enough script "how-to" literary principles to fill the vault he'll probably die in, Edwin is not only a failure, he's an accessory. At Best Derivative is a self-conscious farce comedy that sets out to prove that it is always best to be yourself, even when "yourself" is a pathetic loser with no chance at any real accomplishment.
