Zero Charisma follows a tabletop RPG dungeon master who can manage an entire fantasy world, but just can't seem to get his real life on track. Sounds hilarious right! Nerds. So weird. However, when a hipster geek joins his game group, things get a bit... darker. The trailer doesn't reveal too much, but there could definitely be something a little more substantial here. Zero Charisma will premiere at SXSW next month. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
Metal-loving gamer geek Scott Weidemeyer lives with his ornery grandmother and works a lousy job at a donut shop. But every Tuesday night, he is the omnipotent Game Master, guiding his role-players through a tabletop journey of fantasy and adventure. However, when neo-nerd hipster Miles joins his game, Scott begins to resent the admiration Miles receives from the other players. To make matters worse, the health of his grandmother begins to falter, and his estranged mother visits town, reminding Scott of a childhood he’d just as soon forget. Caught in a spiral of rage and delusion, Scott is forced to take drastic steps to reclaim his honor, and his identity as the Game Master.
