Back in 1998, Louis C.K. directed his first movie, a black-and-white comedy called "Tomorrow Night," which screened at the Sundance Film Festival and featured appearances from Steve Carell, J.B. Smoove and Conan O'Brien. It was never released, but in an interview with Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" this week, C.K. revealed that the film will soon be available for purchase on his website.

Here's the synopsis of the 87-minute film from the Sundance Film Festival:

Tomorrow Night chronicles the loneliness of photo-shop owner Charles, an acerbic, repressed man with an unquenchable “taste” for ice cream. His energetic and overly cheerful postman Mel convinces him that what he really needs is womanly companionship. On the other side of town is Florence, a lonely old woman with a mean, vociferous husband. When Florence isn’t being tortured by her husband, she pines away for Billy, her son in the army who hasn’t written in twenty years and who makes Gomer Pyle look like Einstein. To top it off, the only friend Florence has is Tina, a sweet yet crude and scruffy young man who dresses in old-lady drag. Tina convinces Florence that maybe she needs a little extracurricular spice in her life. Enter Charles, who gets off on the thought of a clean and orderly household, and you have a match made in heaven. From there, things get even weirder.

Here's the trailer, which is suitable for work provided said work environment doesn't frown upon video of a man pulling down his pants and sitting in a bowl of ice cream to achieve sexual gratification.

Check back to Louis C.K.'s website for updates when "Tomorrow Night" will get its official release.
