Film Synopsis

Kombucha! is a story about a musician trapped in an office job he couldn’t care less about. Luke dreams of being on stage while doing B2B marketing work that feels completely meaningless. His coworkers all sip a red kombucha beverage and seem to have found purpose in this place.

When his boss catches him daydreaming and calls out his poor productivity, Luke decides to give the free kombucha a try. A feeling of commitment, focus, and belonging washes over Luke as he churns through creating a pitch deck for an upcoming client meeting. Unfortunately, the kombucha has a series of nasty side effects that grow and writhe inside of Luke. Kombucha! is a short film that gives new meaning to being consumed by your work.
