A massive box office success in Québec, Ken Scott’s Starbuck tracks a likeable middle-aged loser as he wrestles with regret and responsibility. A parking ticket at every single stop along his delivery route, thugs on his tail for overdue loans, and his girlfriend announcing that she is pregnant then dumping him as he is clearly not up to the task… David Wozniak’s day couldn’t get any worse. Or could it? David returns home to find a lawyer in his kitchen. The past is back to haunt him in the form of a class action lawsuit, launched by 142 of the 533 children who resulted from the 648 sperm donations he deposited over 20 years ago. At least he’s good at one thing. David turns to his best friend Paul, a lawyer and father of an unruly brood, who is chomping at the bit to defend David’s right to privacy in this landmark case. But a package of photos of David’s progeny arrives, inspiring a clandestine search for his children and a poignant attempt at anonymous fatherhood.

Director Ken Scott and Producer Andre Rouleau are expected to attend both screenings.
