But when Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, a local columnist comes sniffing around for the truth, and things go from bad to worse.

Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle compounded by a body he can't bury, a wife he can't please, and a debt he can't pay.

"God's Pocket" will premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival in the U.S. Dramatic Competition category on January 17.

The supporting cast includes Richard Jenkins, Christina Hendricks, and John Turturro.
