Watch: 'Don't Be a Hero' Short About an Unhappy Cowboy Bank Robber

Don't Be a Hero Short Film

"I got robbed… by a cowboy." If you were a successful bank robber, would your life really be better? That's one of the questions hidden within this short film titled Don't Be a Hero, from writer/director Pete Lee. Don't Be a Hero is about a middle-aged woman who battles her loneliness and boredom by robbing banks in the guise of a cowboy on her lunch break. But after the adrenaline rush wears off, she still has to deal with her deeply unhappy life. It's inspired by a true story - which isn't surprising once you see this. Missi Pyle stars in this as Lizzy Jo, along with Link Ruiz, Hojo Shin, and Ashley Spillers.
