Homophobic rap superstar Terrier (pronounced “teh-ree-AY”) is tearing up the charts with the smash hit single “Kill Faggots” off his triple-platinum album hoMOFObic. Despite protests from groups like Homosexuals Organizing a Meaningfully Outed Society (H.O.M.O.S.), homophobia is America's hottest trend.
Now Terrier plans to reach an even wider audience by releasing a follow-up single featuring a sample from the deceased king of 80’s hair metal – Max Lightning's “Teri Why.” But the rights to Max's song belong to his widow, the eccentric homophobe Theresa, who will only sign with Terrier on one condition: if he reunites her with her estranged son – none other than gay rights activist Christopher Dalrymple, the leader of H.O.M.O.S.

BEHIND THE MOVIE
Few areas of mainstream media so brazenly air homophobic tendencies as rap music. This hip-hop homophobia is supported by millions of fans of all ethnicities. While a few musicians have raised their voices against the homophobic tide, there is still a long way to go on the road to tolerance toward homosexuals.
OVER DA RAINBOW is a satirical short film conceived to provoke this discussion. Though the film cannot solve the problems it lampoons, our hope is to illuminate these issues through a dialogue sparked by audience reaction – and have a laugh at the expense of those who still don't get the joke.
