An ambitious ex-con named Demetri meets up with an eccentric, gun dealer named Mr. Gun. The dealer shows strange insight into the hooligan's powerfully violent future.
Synopsis: What if you could go back in time and stop a murderous leader before his evil reign? 'Mr. Gun' is a fun slice of stylistic sci-fi, film-noir about a retro-victorian time traveler and his plan to neutralize the path of a destructive dictator before his rise to power. In an old warehouse, on a wasted back-street of urban Los Angeles, an eccentric salesman, named Mr. Gun, sells weapons to a brooding ex-con named Demetri. As the arms deal progresses, Demetri grows increasingly agitated with Mr. Gun's eccentric sales approach and outrageously expensive prices. Not to mention, the annoying side-comments by the girlfriend of Reno, Demetri's quirky side-kick. As Demetri reaches the end of his fuse, Mr. Gun offers one final deal. He brings to the table a strange, toy-like weapon with unrealistic features and a ridiculously low price. Taking this offer as an insult, Demetri becomes enraged. He double-crosses the dealer, and threatens him at gun-point. But, Mr. Gun has an Ace up his sleeve. In an explosive twist, he reveals his true motives and a strange insight into Demetri's powerfully violent future.
