Already branded an acting school drop-out, Oliver courts further indignation by serving as his aunt's live-in dog sitter and pool boy. Having reduced his (anti)social circle to his paranoid drug dealer and embittered best friend, Oliver is shaken from his stupor by the arrival of an alluring houseguest dealing with her own issues.

Working from the bitingly funny, sharply observed script he wrote with actor Oliver Cooper, director Joe Burke edits Four Dogs for maximum comic effect. Jump cuts turn Oliver's interactions into a veritable tilt-a-whirl of social awkwardness. Meanwhile other scenes are allowed to linger until they reveal surprising emotional depth. Be advised: This cutting, close quarters chamber piece will hit awfully close to home for many viewers.
