Tweetable Logline: In one West Texas night, self-determination collides with rudderless fate as three young men try to contest their small-town circumstances.

Elevator Pitch: Walker works a dead-end job as a grocery clerk in the rural town of Stonewall, Texas. Despite his best friend Cole’s assurances that he has the power to make things better for himself, he still feels trapped and discontented. As Walker wrestles with his circumstances, he crosses paths with Danny, a cog in an crumbling drug operation who’s desperately trying to escape the repercussions of his own mistakes.

About the film: “Intersection” is inspired by our own sentiments growing up in West Texas. We’ve all been told from a young age that we can do and become whatever we want. Still, when we get to a certain age, we’re forced to come to terms with where we are, where we’re going and where we dreamt we’d be. As filmmakers in our early twenties, we strongly identify with the vulnerability that comes with “taking the next step”. We’ve often found ourselves questioning the randomness of fate and the scope of self-determination. “Intersection” explores the hazy boundaries between these two notions.
