A couple of lovable, degenerate Juggalos journey through America's hellish underbelly to The Gathering of the Juggalos, the one place on earth they feel accepted.

Trey and Silas are reunited after Trey spent the last year in prison for some dumb shit. To celebrate his freedom, and to peddle their rap demo, the pair embark on their perennial trip to The Gathering of the Juggalos. On the way, they are detoured by a psychotic powerful Sheriff, a violent blood ritual, a trailer park princess, a back woods gang, and a country cop tripping on LSD. And then things start to get really crazy. Along their way they discover their destiny, identity, and the true meaning of family while getting themselves into, and out of, a lot of trouble. It all leads to an unforgettable, gore-soaked, climax in the backwoods of a highway offramp. The feature film debut from Nathan Tape, OFF RAMP was written by Edmonton's Tim Cairo.

Nathan Tape grew up in the Deep South and started making movies as a teenager with his family’s home video camera, using their VCR for editing. As a filmmaker, Nathan tells stories about outsiders on the fringes of society. With his background in photography and music, his films have a bold visual style and exhibit a strong connection to music. Nathan obtained his master’s degree in film production and began working in the lighting department and soon graduated to gaffer on major Hollywood productions. Meanwhile, Nathan continued to work as cinematographer on various short and feature films. In 2020, Nathan directed his first short film, MORIAH. OFF RAMP is Nathan’s debut feature film.
