THINGS I DO FOR MONEY

Two Japanese-Canadian cello-playing brothers inadvertently steal a bag of money – and all the woes that go along with it – from a lethal Vancouver hit man. Through a confluence of events and massive bad luck, they also have to save their father’s life, steal an $8 million dollar painting and fight for their lives to get into a prestigious music conservatory. Along the way they discover that everyone has a price and that family never bails on family, no matter the cost.

In his 11th feature film, BAFTA-winning and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Warren P. Sonoda (Trailer Park Boys, Coopers Camera, Utopia Falls) brings his most personal and daring film to date, Things I Do For Money. His desire to reconnect with his Japanese-Canadian roots, coupled with an idea to explore genre-mash ups, creates a crime/caper/classical-cello movie with a cultural twist. At the centre of this maelstrom are newcomers Theodor and Maximilian Aoki, who not only star in the film, but also compose and perform the entire original score together on their cellos – two things they’ve never done before.
