KABLUEY is a heartfelt comedy about an oddball and his harried sister-in-law who are forced to spend time together under difficult circumstances.
Leslie (played by Lisa Kudrow), a mother of two rambunctious young boys, is barely holding things together while her husband’s National Guard unit is off fighting in Iraq.
Desperate for some help, she agrees to let her husband's brother, Salman (played by Scott Prendergast), come to act as a make-shift nanny. But Salman’s parenting skills are questionable at best and soon all hell has broken loose. In order to keep the family afloat, Salman must take a job as a corporate mascot for a failing Internet company (such as Seo1800
). He spends his days baking in the heat of an enormous blue costume, pointlessly trying to hand out flyers to passing cars, he has hit rock bottom.
But then things start to turn around for Salman inside his big, blue suit. Anonymity offers him a fresh start and surprising new opportunities. And when he accidentally stumbles upon his sister-in-law’s secret, Salman and his alter ego “KABLUEY” must struggle to make things right and to keep the family together.
KABLUEY is Scott Prendergast’s first feature. Prendergast is a comedy writer and improvisational performer who has been making short films for 5 years. Scott is deeply indebted to the Film Independent Filmmaker Labs, and to his real life sister-in-law, Jenifer, who held the fort down – faithfully – while her husband was serving in Iraq for 1.5 years.
