SYNOPSIS: MARY is a feature length, dark comedy film about a middle-aged, trailer trash, truck-stop hooker of the same name, who feels lost and unwanted in the area of romance.
Despite her looks and her age, she bagged herself a boy toy named Jesse, but he’s been cheating on her.
So what’s a woman to do once she finds out? Find another man! A richer one! And that she does. His name? Troy. He lacks Jesse’s looks but knows how to treat a woman well.
When a money hungry Jesse comes back around, jealous of Mary’s new interest, Mary just can’t decide between the two men, so she persuades Jesse to be her son and to move in with her and Troy. Why? So they can still have a relationship and have all the money they want.
Sounds like a stupid plan that will fall through… and it does, leading to Mary’s first taste of murder.
