About the Film: We wanted to make a story about interactions we have with people we never expect to meet. Sometimes it’s these connections that take us out of our shells and help us self-evaluate. We’re all capable of good and bad things, and this film shows both sides of that. In the case of these two guys, they want to help each other get through the circumstance they’ve put themselves in, knowing they’re both responsible for it. In a way, they were meant to meet each other.

Current Status: Currently in post-production. March 2015.
