The streets of New York City have long played a cinematic home to all kinds of tall tales and twisty mysteries, the Big Apple offering no end of backdrops, characters and corners to play a story against. Now, writer/director Nadia Szold has another unique story set in the city that she'll be unveiling at the Slamdance Film Festival.

"Joy De. V" stars Evan Louison, Claudia Cardinale, Josephine de La Baume, Iva Gocheva and Victoria Imperioli and centers on Roman, a con-artist from Long Island who has made his living scamming disability checks for his "mental illness" from the government. His world gets turned upside when his wife Joy, 7 months pregnant, vanishes into thin air. Not only that, it turns out his scam might soon come to an end, unless he can prove that he's still mentally ill. In this exclusive trailer for the film, we can see how the absurdity of the situation adds to the dark comedy and thrills the picture is aiming for, all with some distinctive locations helping add to the feel of the film.

"Joy De. V" will have its first screening at Slamdance on Sunday, January 20th. Watch below.
