Synopsis: Enter the mind of one of the most prolific, cold-blooded killers as he falls asleep while reclined in a chair at the barbershop. The 1920s have never looked as horrifying as when his subconscious reveals his internal contempt for others, his darkest vices, and deepest fears all while unveiling his putrid plot for human destruction! Is this dream a premonition of what’s to come? Or is this man building himself castles in the sky?

"Laura Barbato's The Unorthodox Series is as unorthodox as its creator!" - After Hour Film Festival, https://www.afterhourfilmfestival.com/post/laura-barbato-s-the-unorthodox-series-is-as-unorthodox-as-its-creator

"The Unorthodox is a brilliant work which achieves an outstanding outcome utilizing pictures, scattered signs, widespread details, and an important and effective montage; an outcome that can be placed in the line of surrealism which is an advantage for its director" - Full Shot Cine Magazine, https://www.fullshotcinemag.com/unorthodox
