Synopsis: In this surrealistic comedy, we are thrust into the absurd world of the Greggs, a "family" of four individuals, all named Gregg, who are responsible for writing every standardized test in America. They receive all of their ideas and information telepathically from their leader, The Gregg, an inanimate oil painting of a distinguished colonial judge from days past. One day The Gregg mysteriously vanishes. Unable to function, think, or write tests, the world of the Greggs spirals into the unknown.
