  • Everyone loves Joe Ridley, except Joe. Dark, crushing depression envelops him and a childhood trauma haunts him. Elly loves him but he is pushing her away. Can he save himself before he loses everything?

  • Joe Ridley is the life and soul of the party, every party. Loved by all and in seemingly in love with life he leads a rock and roll lifestyle. But underneath it all, beneath his skin and buried in his mind is a dark, destructive depression fogging his very existence. When he meets Elly, they fall in love and all seems well on the surface. But as his fears begin to bubble to the surface their relationship begins to suffer and with it is his mental health.

  • A raw, honest and accurate portrayal of what it's like to deal (or not deal) with depression. We follow the manic highs and rock bottom lows of Joe Ridley as he hides his internal struggles from the love of his life, Elly. Funny one minute, painful the next, Hi-Lo Joe is structured and shot as if the film itself is dealing with the constant ups and unexpected downs of depression.
