Director’s Statement

Mannyx Guillen – Producer / Writer / Director

I was reading an interesting research study about the power of the placebo effect, which inspired me to write a script for a feature film. What would men use a placebo pill for? Immediately I came to the conclusion that people would use it to manipulate others. The dream of men to control women and to have the perfect wife, an obedient, beautiful, happy, devoted creature who cleans, cooks, and is always willing to have sex, is an ancient male fantasy. The movie answers this fantasy in a funny and colorful way with the message:

“You’d better not mess with a woman or you gonna feel the sting!”.
