A janitor in a small store discovers a magical mixture of colognes that causes women to uncontrollably chase him.  Does he use the colognes?  Would you?  Be careful what you wish for.

This was a chase film project for the Cinema 2 class at the LACC Film School.  It was my first film as writer, director, and producer.
