Tweetable Logline: When the daughter of Hollywood Royalty fakes her own kidnapping she enlists the help of a pickpocket to help on mysterious journey.

Elevator Pitch: Daughter of Hollywood Royalty Lola Franklin hasn’t been kidnapped at all. She’s faked her kidnapping intent on traveling to Mobile, AL. Somewhere in the California desert she meets Marlo and they fall instantly in love. Dangerous Love. But Marlo has secrets of his own. Seems he’s stolen money from some very bad people. So when Marlo discovers Lola’s parents are offering a reward for her safe return, he must confront his own past and decide whether to turn Lola in for the reward or help her on her mysterious journey. Doing the right thing for love was never so hard.

Production Team:
Rupert Glasson – Director / Writer

About the film: We wanted to make a road trip movie about the first time that you fell in Love. Our goal was to capture the confusion, splendor, terror and Joy of young love wrapped up in the Rock n’ Roll stylings of a classic American Romantic Adventure Road Trip. So Rupert wrote a fantastic script that could be made on a budget, we called in every favor known to man and over 18 days sweated it out in the California desert. Our cast and crew pulled off a heroic feat of Independent filmmaking. Now we need to finish strong what we started.

Current Status: Raising finishing funds via Indiegogo Campaign. Primarily for Sound Mix and sound.
