            MASHBONE & GRIFTY is a satirical action-comedy, about a gullible, happy-go lucky monkey-man and his pessimistic, cowardly sad-sack best friend who, after years of stagnation in dead-end gigs, decide to take life in their own mitts by starting their own detective agency in a South Texas border-town.
