RUN THIS CITY
(in San Francisco)
A group of college buddies (Tyler, Sean, Simon, Jeremy) moved to San Francisco from Boston with startup hopes and dreams. As they arrive in the glamorous city, they had one idea, to do it big in Silicon Valley, although they are merely living in an ex-girlfriend's (Becca) two-bedroom apartment in the mission district. They have a business app idea and little to no network to tap into. We follow them as they try to get their idea funded. The guys come from lower middle class families with a lot of college debt, they are currently broke, like broke, broke, like super broke.
The group of guys also all have a cocaine habit, some worse than others. Becca, whom they've been living with has a good cocaine supplier (Runner). She suggests they speak to the cocaine supplier about investing in an idea. The guys meet with this supplier, and he's a local, born and raised San Francisco native-from a notorious project housing in the city. They are impressed with his charisma and he is impressed with their ideas and talents. They hit it off, and Runner agrees to fund the company by tapping into his Boss' funds. Runner also shows them an idea of his own, that he’s been trying to get off the ground himself, he is an innovator too. The guys are great software app developers and impress Runner who then gets more funding from his boss (Moe).
As the plot unravels, the guys end up stealing runners idea and we find ourselves in the thick of a heated tech and street war....
