Meanwhile, strip club owner Jimmie (Robert WC Kennedy) has fallen for dancer Sandy (Edy Cullen), he knows that Sandy really loves John (Nathaniel Ross). He also knows they are planning on skipping town, with money that John has been skimming, and that's something he can't allow.

Dirty Job Films is proud to present our second feature film, Petty Cash. Scripted during the holiday season of 2009 with production beginning in February of 2010, the film was shot in 16 days, only on weekends, over a 6 month period. This included a quick reshoot happening in September 2010 with Bai Ling coming in to recreate an existing role. Petty Cash premiered a month later to thrilled audiences at a packed theater inside the Milwaukee Art Museum.

 

"In a world where everyone has secrets, who can you trust? Petty Cash is a non-stop thrill ride with characters that leap off the screen. When debts are due, there's no where to hide and somebody's going to pay. A low level bag man, his wife, his brother, a stripper, the strip club owner, a junkie whore, a psychopathic mute, a crime boss, and others, all collide in a final dance of death over money and survival.
