SYNOPSIS Stuck repeating the same pattern of mistakes again and again, Andrew Egan reluctantly accepts a teaching job to support his floundering, stand-up comedy career. As an increasingly anxious Andrew grows accustomed to the droll institution and its occupants he suspects that one of the students may be his downfall and that the previous teacher may not have left of his own accord. His life slowly unraveling, Andrew's lessons fall on deaf ears and he soon becomes part of a larger cosmic joke. "Locus of Control is a clever and insightful dark comedy that centres on Andrew Egan, a struggling stand-up comedian. A Kafkaesque tale of ego and insecurity where Andrew is stuck repeating the same pattern of mistakes over and over. This is a bright and intriguing debut feature, from an exciting filmmaker who seamlessly blends a nightmare landscape with contemporary issues. Brooding dreams are dashed to make way for tomorrow." - IndieCork Film Festival
