In a spooky small town, when a slew of pizza delivery boys are slain on the job, two daring survivors (Atlanta's Zazie Beetz and Chance the Rapper in a wild film debut) set out to catch the culprits behind the cryptic crime spree. Slice is director Austin Vesely's first feature film after helming music videos for Chance's "Sunday Candy" and "Angels."
Austin Vesely is a VMA-nominated, Chicago-based director that has played a key role in the ascent of many burgeoning Chicago artists. He has collaborated with musicians including Kehlani, Vic Mensa and Neko Case. Most notably, he is the principal visual collaborator for Chance the Rapper. Their work together includes the music videos for "Sunday Candy", "Angels" and "No Problem".
