"High Life" : The Perfect Crime

Set in 1983, following the first implementation of 'Automated Teller Machines', "High Life" is a new Canadian feature, lensed in Winnipeg, written/directed by Gary Yates, starring Timothy Olyphant, Rossif Sutherland, Joe Anderson and Stephen McIntyre.

In "High Life", following a visit from his former cellmate 'Bug' (McIntyre), 'Dick' (Olyphant) gets fired from his job as a hospital janitor.

Unemployed and in need of fast cash, Dick gets the idea to rob a brand new ATM machine. Enter 'Donnie' (Anderson) and 'Billy' (Sutherland) to help put the pieces into place.

But things don't go quite according to plan...

"...Alternately tragic and hysterical, the 'High Life’ perfect plan ends up anything but when one of the bank’s employees double-crosses them all. Set against the nostalgic back-beat of 'Three Dog Night', 'Creedence Clearwater Revival' and a raft of 'April Wine', the 'High Life’ highwire tension unfolds with calamitous results..."

Union Pictures will release "High Life" across Canada, rolling out January 15 in Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Calgary and January 22 in Montreal, Ottawa, Edmonton and Halifax.
