The son of a corrupt Congressman, Perry has lost faith in all the things he held true - his family, girlfriend, and the American Dream. He finds himself emotionally bereft and depressed. In search of self-discovery, Perry meets Giovanni, an art student with an unrealized gift, Giovanni is Perry's polar opposite.

As Perry and Gio's relationship evolves, and drug-fueled emotions churn, their... Written by Asif Ahmed

Did You Know?


Perry: He's avoided, so long, his need for another. Out of pride... more so fear. We're both at war with ourselves. His battle is the fear of living and enduring more pain. Mine is the truth of man's existence and necessity for sacrifice.

indie lacking
17 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Perry Roberts (Michael Welch) goes on a rant on the internet about his privilege. Dr. Reeves (Jeremy London) is his therapist and Patricia (Patricia Richardson) is his mother. He's the son of a corrupt politician. Giovanni (Shaun Sipos) is a drug dealing art student with a gun, one bullet, and a ritual. Freshman Molly (Sarah Foret) is obsessed with Giovanni. The two guys see each other as polar opposites and start a disturbed friendship over the ritual.

Neither guy is appealing. Perry is a problematic lead character. His fixation on the American dream comes off as teen angst. He has no basis. It needs to be more specific about his anger towards his parents. It needs scenes of them together at the beginning. Shaun Sipos lacks intensity portraying Giovanni. The whole movie lacks tension. This is an indie with a couple of half-cooked ideas.
