"Random Shooting in LA" is shot entirely from the POV of
a video camera that comes to LA with a family of tourists and is abruptly
stolen in a carjacking; then fenced, sold, traded and wagered, making
its way through a wide succession of owners and situations. Capturing
stories and incidents large and small… from thrill-seeking teens
out for a night of rowdy fun… to a married couple's blundering attempt
at home-porn… through incidents of unrequited love and brutal violence…
the camera takes us on a gritty urban odyssey before reaching its ultimate
conclusion of cruel betrayal and unexpected grace.

down and out friends living in Venice, California, struggle in social
and economic deprivation. They reach the point where they can't go on.
Escalating pressures force them to hatch a wild get-rich-quick scheme
in a last ditch attempt to solve “all of their problems”.
The far-fetched scheme involves one of them being bitten by a rat in a
major supermarket with the fantastical hopes of winning an outrageously
huge settlement. What transpires is a perfect example of “the best
laid plans of mice and men” where reality trumps delusion and, in
one comic turn after another, depravity gives way to humanity.
