Birds Dropping Review 

Author -  CineArtistry 

"A hilarious little short film about two women headed to a wedding when their car suddenly breaks down in the middle of the desert. Much in the same vein as a show like Seinfeld, the two characters are so petty that their actions ultimately worsen their own situation ... We’re excited to see kinds of films these guys will be making in the future, especially if they ever make a feature film."
