Scalene Release Information: " Breaking Glass Pictures is proud to announce the July 31 Blu-Ray (SRP $29.99) and DVD (SRP $24.99) release of Scalene, a dark, edgy thriller that asks you to decide the truth for yourself in the face of tragedy.
Written and directed by Zack Parker, and starring Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale (“Justified”, “A Gifted Man”), Hanna Hall (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, The Virgin Suicides) and Adam Scarimbolo (Stake Land). Scalene brings the best and the worst in everyone to the surface in a twisted, layered tale of betrayal, lies and revenge.
Scalene is a perceptual thriller told from three points-of-view revolving around the rape of a female college student by a mentally handicapped man and his mother’s subsequent breakdown.

There, he's met by Daniel, a lifelong resident of Dagmar who witnessed the choking death of his friend during lunch time.

GUARDS OF DAGMAR has been described as “if Alexander Payne had written The Sixth Sense” by Kim Evey, producer of one of the biggest series on the web The Guild and the new YouTube Channel Geek & Sundry. It is a webseries with an eye toward television, structured so each story arc spans twenty-two minutes, which can viewed all at once (as a television episode) or broken down into three narrative blocks (as a web episode)."
