This is a short film I directed a couple of years ago that I just made public this week for the first time.

It stars the extremely talented actor Jimmy LeBlanc who has been featured in films like “Spotlight,” “Gone Baby Gone,” and “Stronger” amongst others; the Kenyan bon actor Ted Ndinya, and James McCarthy. It was photographed by Jabari Canada and produced by Norman Lang.
