Jacob lives an unseen life in the midst of the crowded city. When he stumbles upon Michael, bleeding in an alley, he must decide whether he can take the risk to help. In this moving short film story, a teenage street kid finds the strength to open up his life after a wounded stranger opens his eyes to the possibility of love and beauty around him.
Their journey together opens up both of their lives to the possibility of love and hope for the future.
We’re in pre-production on this short film here in Denver. I wrote the script and will direct the film. Chloe Anderson, of Epicenter Pictures, is producing the project as part our shared mission to mentor emerging filmmakers. Our crew consists of some seasoned professionals as well as students who want to hone their craft.
We plan to make the film available to other non-profit organizations who deal with issues of homelessness, hopelessness, and teens-at-risk.
