The King of California

Teenager Miranda is supporting herself by working at McDonalds while her father, Charlie, resides in a mental institution.

When Charlie is sent back home by the authorities, it is up to Miranda to deal with her father who has now become obsessed with the notion that the long lost treasure of Spanish explorer Juan Florismarte Garces is buried somewhere near their suburban Californian home.

A darkly funny take on the modern family and the American dream.
