  • Short Film

After robbing the town bank and having his quick-change plans fall apart, a local teen carjacks a hapless farmer selling sweet corn on the side of the road.  As they attempt to get out of dodge the farmer decides to help the teen escape and stick it to the very bank that is foreclosing on his property.  A series of obstructions force them to go back through town where the teen has to trust that the farmer’s aw shucks image can camouflage his bad seed reputation and erase any suspicion.

Sweet Corn is the first film in the longer series, County State USA.
