SATIRE about work­place cul­ture, black ex­ploita­tion and ram­pant capitalism. Cas­sius Green (Lakeith Stan­field, pic­tured) – aka Cash – lands a job as a tele­mar­keter. Cash’s ten­ta­tive first ef­forts to en­gage cus­tomers are dispir­it­ing failures un­til an ex­pe­ri­enced co-worker (Danny Glover) im­parts sage words. “You want to make some money here, read the script with your white voice,” he whis­pers. Sure enough, when Cash (now voiced by David Cross) erases all traces of Oak­land from his pat­ter, he se­cures his first sale... then an­other. In record time, he is courting the at­ten­tion of CEO Steve Lift (Ar­mie Ham­mer).

Down­load/stream from April 1 and avail­able on DVD from April 15.
