Colin Cunningham describes the movie thusly:

"Centigrade", in a nutshell, is about a guy who lives in an old dilapidated, busted-up trailer. There's no wheels on it. It's just laying dead in the weeds. [The owner] does a bad thing, and he wakes up in the morning and [the trailer is] rolling down the highway. It's being towed by a big, black pickup truck. The doors won't open and the windows won't break and he can't get out. That's essentially what it's about. It's about a man trapped."

Production

The part of the main character was originally to go to another actor, but difficulties forced Cunningham to take the part himself.

The script was written 17 years ago; Madison Graie suggested to Cunningham that they apply for the Directors Guild of Canada's [http://www.dgcbc.com/ie4/kickstart/kickstart.cfm Kickstart Program] to make "Fahrenheit" ("Centigrade"'s original title). The pair won one of the five Kickstart awards and used the $20,000 CAD prize to make the film.
