THE STORY: Doug, a carefree hipster, unwraps the gift of love and discovers a time-bomb of revenge. Tallahassee patriarch Judge Knott wanted his only son, Doug, to give him a grandson. Doug, having taken enough shit from the redneck Judge, aims his metaphorical gun at his father and says, “No way. I am the last of the Knotts.” This is Knott a comedy…
