When Peyton wakes up on a football field in the freezing cold, he finds himself in an oversized, sagging penguin costume. He decides to cure it like he always does-- with a joint and a coffee.
Peyton makes his way over to his regular diner, where his friends provide the usual mindless post-party banter. After trying to narrow down whom Peyton slept with the night before, a routine bathroom coke therapy session, and some unexpected insight from an unexpected person, Peyton realizes that he is just living directionless in a life controlled by everyone else.
Alexa Green was born in the Berkshires, Massachusetts. She has always loved film. Her earliest influence was Howard Hawks, when at age eight she was able to recite all of the dialogue from his 1946 film The Big Sleep. When she received a camcorder for Christmas 2005, she began filming everything she could.
Green directs and produces short films, documentaries, parodies, tv shows, promotional material, and music videos, and has worked in every position from Production Manager to Assistant Director to Editor on numerous student and professional shorts and features. She has won several national awards for her work, and has been hired by local businesses and filmmakers to create promotional material and documentaries. Green has also worked with HBO, Nickelodeon, Columbia Pictures, PBS, THEM Media, the Berkshire Film & Media Collaborative, and New York Times bestselling author Rachel Simmons, among many others. She graduated in January 2013 with a BFA in Film and Television from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, with a double-minor in Producing & Sociology.
Green now floats between New York City and Western Massachusetts, working on various shoots in both areas.

She has honed her production style and storytelling method at NYU's Tisch School for Film and Television. Her most recent endeavor has been directing her first narrative short, "In The Chair." The film takes a closer and more realistic look at the black hair salon experience.
