Another heartwarming review from a fan says: “Self Reliance is ridiculously good! Jake Johnson is wonderful behind and in front of the camera. His use of different lenses was dynamic. His use of horror undertones added some much-needed tension alongside all the drama and laughs. I would love to see him tackle a horror project.”

What is the plot of “Self Reliance”?

Tommy, a disillusioned middle-aged man from Los Angeles, receives a unique offer: to win $1 million by participating in a reality show on the dark web. In order for him to win the prize money, he must stay alive for 30 days while a band of hunters try to kill him.

He finds a flaw in the game: hunters can only kill him when he is alone. So he continues to convince his family, friends and strangers to stay with him 24/7, even though they don’t believe the game is real.
