Logline: After a plan to scare their high school principal goes terribly wrong, three high school best friends’ relationships are tested as they cover up their crime and their ringleader’s affair with an older woman.
YINZ is a dark comedy set in a very specific world, filled with its own language, customs, and biases. It’s a unique take on a the classic teen coming-of-age story set in the heart of the Rust Belt. Its themes deal with loyalty to and betrayal of family, friends, and ethnic identity in the boiler pot of a small town where everybody knows each other. Special love and attention will be paid to the hyperlocal “Yinzer” culture of Western Pennsylvania and how it affects the characters in different ways.
