Ruprecht

Director: Yangzom Brauen .

Dr. Ruprecht Rummel recently retired from a career as an Urologist. Spending most of his time at home now and looking forward to peace and quality time in his adopted home of Los Angeles, he gets terribly annoyed by the illegal use of leaf blowers. Despite having a Leaf Blower Hotline, the Department of Public Works does not enforce the law and regulations to battle these illegal dust blowers. Ruprecht, a proud L.A. resident, is determined to find some peace and takes the law in his own hands. In a much needed romantic twist, even a maverick like Ruprecht gets what he deserves.
