Door Mouse is a Neo-Noir/Social Justice Thriller about a woman named Mouse who is stuck in her dead-end job, nihilistic and unsure of the point of engaging in what she sees as a doomed future. She works at Mama’s Burlesque Club all night, where her boss Mama encourages her to pursue her real passion of making comics. When a friend from work named Doe-Eyes goes missing and the cops do nothing about it, Mouse and her sidekick Ugly take it upon themselves to find out what happened to her. What they discover is that corruption runs deep, monsters are real, and that sometimes, justice is meant to be taken into your own hands.
Door Mouse marks Avan Joguia’s feature film debut as a director.
