Fukry is a romantic comedy set in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The feature film follows a group of Native American men and women as they go through the ups and downs of love. A screwball stoner rom-com, we follow Ching Yazzie, a longboard craftsman and Dawn Wilson, an aspiring performance artist set on moving to northern California for a “mime residency”. When Ching expresses his love for Dawn, burdened by the heavy emotions she pukes on him- this catapults into Dawn leaving and propelling Ching into a spiraling descent. Ching’s roommate Dezbah (Dez), who is secretly in love with him, scolds Ching for his endless crying and motivates him to get back to work. While on his second job delivering weed, Ching meets an atmosphere artist, Ida. The two quickly connect and make plans to meet. When Dez learns of Ida, she gets furiously jealous. Feeling threatened by this newcomer, Dez begins to turn on the charm, causing Ching to question her bewildering behavior. Through the course of a long weekend involving punk rock shows, a gallery opening and some comic fighting, the characters discover their real feelings in this twisted bizarre love triangle.
