Title from Adam at the show last night. He kept shouting it out and Pete kept ignoring him, so I’m taking it upon myself to do this one. I honestly have no idea what to do with this one, I probably should have done something like all the people in the town are disappearing and it turns out they are making lemonade out of people, but instead…
The movie starts off with a bunch of workers going to a dock hoping to be called for work, it’s kind of like Cinderella Man but they are all hoping to get work at the local lemonade factory. Our main character, Jared, get’s the word and goes to the factory. There’s a conveyor belt with lemons on them, Jared picks up on at a time, puts the lemons into a squeezer, squeezes out the juice, puts the used lemon back onto a conveyor belt and there is a stack of used lemons that it falls onto at the end.
Jared, back at home, in his house made of lemon peels, is sitting with his family at dinner, a wife and kid or two. They are all sitting around eating lemons for dinner. The kid says something about wanting something other than lemons for dinner and Jared and his wife are taken back. Jared talks about how lemons pay for his school, his books, the house and meals. He reminises about being a child and starting a lemonade stand and how he started to value the lemon and suggests his kid does the same, as it will teach him about the lemon.
The next day Jared goes to work at the lemon factory and his child starts up a lemonade stand. Theres a bunch of cuts between Jared squeezing the lemons and people coming up to the lemonade stand to buy some, when eventually a few lemon thugs come up to the stand and bust it up saying you can’t just start a lemonade stand and beat up his kid pretty bad.
Jared finds out what happened and when he goes to work the next day he asks the people in charge what the deal was. They tell him some stuff about how they own the lemonade business and no one can sell lemonade on their turf without paying them and getting their approval. Jared flips out on them and they end up beating Jared to a pulp.
(I have no idea where to go from here…)
Jared still goes to work there but starts to sabotage the lemonade their making. Profits start dropping and the lemonade goons start to suspect Jared is up to something. They find it out and burn down his lemon house. Jared, ass distraught goes on a revenge kick. He follows one of the goons home and kills him, then makes pink lemonade out of normal lemonade and the goons blood. He ends up bringing this to the bosses and they seem to love it and want to market it. Jared says he needs more supplies to make more of it, and pistols whips them, taking out the rest of the family at the same time. Jared walks down from the office and tells everyone that lemonade is for the people and not to be used for evil. The workers all celebrate.
We see Jared a few months later, at a stand of his own selling pink lemonade which the town can’t seem to get enough of. He runs out and has to make more, at which point he goes to a freezer box in his new lemon home that he has built for the purpose of this story, where the rest of the bodies are kept. Jared is heard to be saying “get your ice cold pink lemonade here.” As the screen fades to black.
This is the Perfume of Lemonade.
