Project Synopsis
Blake, a young retail drug buyer, plans to set up two of his drug dealers on a date. He invites Switch, a paranoid drug dealer with plenty of skin in the game, to meet Uncle Stabby, an awkward drug dealer with all the unfortunate mannerisms of an undercover police officer. Although the pretense of a date is appealing to Uncle Stabby, Switch is less trusting, immediately calling out that it might be a setup. In the end, it’s revealed that Switch and Blake were reeling Uncle Stabby in to reveal that he’s a drug dealer. The ultimate setup.
