A raw, honest and accurate portrayal of what it's like to deal (or not deal) with depression. We follow the manic highs and rock bottom lows of Joe Ridley as he hides his internal struggles from the love of his life, Elly. Funny one minute, painful the next, Hi-Lo Joe is structured and shot as if the film itself is dealing with the constant ups and unexpected downs of depression.
