After a year of marriage, Juliet (Jennifer Stockwell) and Grandison (David Cowan) are preparing for a small gathering at their home to celebrate their anniversary. But when Juliet's romantic relationship with one of their guests is rekindled, the future of the young marriage becomes unsure. As the home is consumed by conflict and suspicion, Juliet's daughter, Zoe (Carrae McDonald) finds nowhere to bring her own relational troubles.
An intense tour of misunderstanding, ethical ambiguity, and finally epistemological violence, The Poorest Man in the World is a clear-eyed look at what it means to be a middle-class American family.
Currently in post-production in Boise, Idaho, The Poorest Man in the World is scheduled for release in early 2017.
