Two screenwriters decide that a backpacking trip would be just the thing to get the creative juices flowing again. While in the back country, one gets a killer screenplay idea -- literally. As the distrust grows, the two take turns trying to kill each other, and the story takes many a snaky twist.

"Art imitates life imitates art. That’s the big conclusion one is left pondering after watching director Eric Simonson’s ironic and amusing comedy 'Topa Topa Bluffs'...a solid debut outing that’s far more entertaining than many other big budgeted films that were themselves probably conceived on nature hikes."
