Storyline

Three different scenarios, intercut, all using the same words but with very different meanings. A corrupt cop is more interested in the money on the criminals he catches than justice; a young woman discovers she's pregnant, and her boyfriend is unfeeling; and a young man calls a prostitute it's the first time for both, and neither can go through with it. Ultimately, all the stories come together. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Wadlow shows that USC still produces brilliance!
1 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was quite impressed with his recent film, "Cry Wolf." I was even more impressed to find that he shot that film from the cash prizes and grants that he collected for the awesome short film, "Tower" which can be seen on the UNRATED DVD edition of "Wolf." I have not seen such great casting, plot arcing, and direction in years. Look for WADLOW (and his talented friends back at the film school) to be a blockbuster name(s) in a few years! Keep in mind this is the same film school where Coppola, Lucas, and Spielberg first cut film--together.

PS: Nice job on Ms. Booth--she is a rare find and this director gave her a great spotlight.
