If there's one thing the men of Rockford, Texas love as much as their women, it's their guns. But life in this idyllic town is turned upside-down when a gun incident involving her son spurs stay-at-home mom Jenna (Andrea Anders) to rethink Rockford's obsessive gun culture. Much to the chagrin of her husband Glenn (Matt Passmore), Jenna ignites a movement by convincing the women of Rockford to withhold sex until every gun in town is given up. A wild and hilarious showdown ensues between the sexes. As tensions—and libidos—rise, the men and women of Rockford must decide what's really important: keeping the peace or getting a piece.
The NYFCS Is That A Gun In Your Pocket?... event will take place on Tuesday, September 13th, 2016 at 7pm at the AMC Empire 25, 42nd Street Entertainment Center, 234 W 42nd St, New York, NY 10036. Press welcome. Public passes here
