University years are over, and aspiring journalist Hector Allan has found himself stuck between four walls on a sinking ship. The stress of finding work, getting from place to place, and affording a moment to breathe are deeply meandered by the destructive behavior of his close friend and roommate, Charlie, who has let life pass him by as he pollutes his body with whatever he can find. When a new synthetic hits the streets and finds itself in Charlie’s hands, it’s only a matter of time before a beautiful high births an untimely low. Choice and consequence bare down as Hector descends to the ocean floor, closer to the brink of pandemonium. From the aspiring minds that brought you such films as “Smoke” and “Help Me Before”...
Hyena is our first foray into something we’ve only dreamed of for the last decade, an earnest film with a message and purpose both integral and fascinating. It’s the film we’ve always wanted to make, and always wanted people to see. A piece so mannered, it’s unbecoming, something so tasteful, you’d swear it’s bitter. It’s the trip we’ve wanted to take you on for years, a cathartic journey of unbalanced syndrome, insanity, and malice, bestowed upon lives we could all see living, mistakes we could all see making. We’re taking all of the measures we can to bring this beautiful monster to life with the resources we have, but our paths become numbered. We ask, our friends, our cohorts, the ones we hold dear. Anything helps. We need to take every careful step, every artifact and opportunity, in plotting this venture that stems only from one place: the heart of two endearing imaginations that just cannot wait to make something wild.
