An idiosyncratic cast of characters populate THE LISA THEORY, a low-budget feature film about the dangers of dating women named Lisa. Filmmaker Steven Okazaki follows the rocky romantic trail of three young punks — Devon, Adam and Jimbo.
Devon (Devon Morf) loves Lisa (Honey O. Yates), but doesn't realize that his relationship needs some attention. Instead, he escapes to band practice. One morning, Lisa wakes up, jumps on a bus and disappears.
Dumped and devastated, Devon vows to stay in bed until Lisa returns. Three months pass and he's still in bed. The once plucky musician is now a mono-syllabic zombie. In addition, his band has fallen apart and his roomates want to kill him. Finally, Devon's two buddies, Adam (Avel Sosa II) and Jimbo (Jim Matison), devise a plot to get the lovesick Devon out of the sack and back among the living.
The film features music from San Francisco-based All You Can Eat, Ovarian Trolley, Clockbrains, Her Majesty the Baby, Wade, Unrest and Less Is More.
