Michael B. Silver,
Fresh out of USC film school, Frank E. Flowers stuffs the dirt of drug smuggling right under your fingernails. Drawing from personal acquaintances and a childhood in the Cayman Islands - and long before "Maria Full of Grace" hit the big screen, SWALLOW takes you on a teen's ride of his life. Think "Risky Business" meets "Scarface" and you're almost ready for this film. An Official Selection to Sundance, this fast-paced tale of deception drags a high school senior through the heady highs and lows of the life of a drug mule. The seduction is inevitable, the betrayal is a fore-gone conclusion - with twists everywhere. The fastest 24 minutes of your life - and always on the edge of your seat as you fight your gag reflex. That's what SWALLOW will do for you.
