Today hasn't been a good day for Dolph (Jack Plotnick). His dog, the love of his life, has run away, a car accident has shut down his favourite route to work, and the palm tree in his back yard has somehow turned into a pine — his gardener has never seen anything like it. The answers to all these predicaments may lie with the mysterious Master Chang (Drive Angry's William Fichtner), or with a new pizza place that has opened nearby. Or maybe there just aren't any.

Writer-director Quentin Dupieux's follow-up to his cult hit Rubber — the one about the killer car tire — Wrong takes place in a world in which seemingly anything can happen. That turns into a source of frustration for the perpetually put-upon Dolph, but for audiences, it's a pure Dadaist delight.

From the director of last year's Sorry, Rabbi, this speculative sci-fi short follows a group of friends in their quest for the perfect moment.
