Storyline

Edge is the story of Edward 'Edge' Jones (Edge), a man with no memory of the event in the Persian Gulf war that left him physically scarred and lost in a civilian world that offers him no direction. From the past comes Lennox, a fellow soldier from the war, who invites him to go on a road trip with the promise of regaining the adventure and camaraderie they knew in the military. Edge is captured in the attraction of regaining his identity as a soldier and agrees to go, unaware of Lennox's all-consuming need for the powers of a warrior in battle. In the beginning, the trip re-awakens Edge's spirit, but gradually his memory returns as well, and as the events of the past become more horribly clear, so does Lennox's 'mission' become evident, and Edge finds himself in a nightmarish world of betrayal, both past and present. On a parallel road trip, a young girl, Berry, leads her mother on a quest to photograph UFO's, presumably for initiation into a society of witnesses. True motives ... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Edward 'Edge' Jones: While I was in the bathroom I was thinking about all of my operations. You know, I was under anesthetic for so much of the time that anything could have happened and I wouldn't have known it. What if one of those doctors had just decided to let me die and disconnected everything? They could do that and I'd be completely helpless. They could do anything they wanted to me and then kill me or just tell me that everything is fine when I wake up, and I'd never know the difference. I hate that ...

Crazy Credits

The Edge title is eclipsed like the moon eclipses the sun with neon, laser blue edging and slowly moves away as if the audience is falling backwards from the moon which ties into the opening shot of Edge's dream in which he free falls from the moon and enhances the idea of an edge. At the end of the motion picture one of the producers lists, "In Memory of Helen" followed by "I miss you . . . Come find me . . ." See more »
