Star high school quarterback, Josh McIntyre wants to be a writer, but everyone sees him only as a popular jock headed to college on a football scholarship. After transferring to a new school, he decides to write an article about the bullying of a gay student at his new school. In order to really shake things up, Josh decides to make his article a grand social experiment by changing his Facebook status to "interested in men" and writing about how perceptions of family, teammates and teachers change toward him.

The video goes viral and Josh suddenly finds himself shot into the media spotlight and a hero to gay teens across the country. Nothing about being gay for Josh is easy, especially keeping the big secret that he's actually straight.
Joshua Oppenheimer reimagines a sixty-second stock market update as maniacal monologue by a mumbling madman giving a bizarre play-by-play of floor traders and urban pedestrians as the trading day comes to an end. Created while in the midst of production on the feature-length GLOBALIZATION TAPES, this brief film is Oppenheimer's most concentrated piece of socio-political commentary: a quick, colorful political cartoon of capitalism plucked out-of-context and set to a soundtrack that is both comic and somewhat sinister. The upbeat musical accompaniment only enhances the empty celebration of meaningless activity.
