Robbie Amell’s character is struggling to pay for his ailing mother’s health treatment and is lured into a lucrative criminal world by Stephen Amell’s character, who works for a drug lord (Byrk).
Robbie and Stephen Amell serve as executive producers along with Lee Kim of Resolute Films, Mary Anne Waterhouse of Blue Ice Pictures, and Thick Water Entertainment.
A 10-minute short film was released as part of the Indiegogo campaign, check it out.
