Synopsis

The Rise and Fall of the Grumpy Burger follows obsessive film­maker Marshall Sfalcin as he attempts to make a movie about his family and their once legendary fast-food empire.

Soon, a film within a film emerges and the line between truth and fiction becomes increas­ingly blurred. Along the way, The Rise and Fall of the Grumpy Burger delves into the madness of amateur film­making, the com­plex­ities of family ties, and the "truth" about fast food.
