“SHORTS” is a comedy shot in the form of a mockumentary. It tells the
story of Richard Marquez, 25, a young, hotshot copywriter and
production designer of one of the country’s top advertising agencies
who suddenly “snaps” or seems to have snapped as relayed by people
close to him.

He seems to be doing anything to make his newly bought shorts dirty to the fear of everyone.

What really happened to him? While it is told in a humorous manner, “Shorts” is a serious commentary on how we tend to make conclusions but in the end, the joke is really on us.
