Storyline

Mitchell is out of work. He's just gotten a letter from his long lost father in Las Vegas, and he needs $600 to get there. He enrolls in a medical study, and while there, befriends Jimmy, a young boy who is a patient at the hospital (and a bit of a pool shark). When the study ends, Mitchell discovers that Jimmy's father is dead, contrary to what Jimmy has told him, and that Jimmy is sicker than he let on. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Best short I've ever seen
14 March 2000 | by rbarishSee all my reviews

Not only has newcomer Susan Johnson made an incredible discovery of unbridled talent, she has also proven herself as a master of her craft. Robert Glen Keith, who plays Mitchell is more mesmerising to watch than any of the leading men in the business today. I would urge any and all studio execs to keep their eyes and ears open on this impressive collaboration. It is too bad that the movie is just a short, because I just wanted the brillance to keep engaging me.....Cheers to all involved...Great work.
