Synopsis

Set over the course of a day in the college town of Austin, Texas, 'Slacker' follows a series of oddball characters as they wander the streets pursuing their own individual obsessions. These range from the eccentric (a man tries to convince every passer-by that the aliens have landed) to the sinister (a boy runs over his mum and then watches old home movies until the police arrive). Together with Douglas Coupland's 'Generation X', 'Slacker' acted as a rallying cry for the twentysomethings in the early 90s who couldn't quite get it together to rally.
