A man goes to the rescue of his childhood friend when a business deal goes awry, only to get caught up in his friend's wild lifestyle
THE WRITER'S MESSAGE
This is a story about friendship, which everyone can relate to. We've all had friends, who, for better or worse, come into our lives. Whether they're just passing through or are here to stay. Some inspire or teach us while others challenge and even drain our energy...and sometimes - our wallets. But they all have one common thread: they all leave a lasting impression. This is one of those stories.
It's been both a great challenge and great fun creating this screenplay. It all started with a five page script, which little by little, with the input and suggestions of many, is now a full length short film script.
But this is just the beginning...!
We need some help from YOU. We'd love for YOU to be a part of this experience - from beginning to end. Without YOUR help, it's just not possible. Please contribute so we can get this project up and running. No amount is too little....or too great. We obviously appreciate the financial support, but perhaps most importantly is for YOU to help us get the word out.

We urge you to tag your friends, nag your parents and invite your relatives...rich ones preferred :)
Thanks for taking the time to watch our video and consider our campaign. We really appreciate YOU believing in us.
Leslie Chacón, Producer

Risks and challenges
As with all projects there are risks and challenges. Should we meet our fundraising goal we have a well thought out plan and budget to make sure every hard earned penny YOU donate will be allocated accordingly. YOUR donation will not be spent frivolously.
All proceeds will go into the making of the film: our extremely talented cast and crew insist on being fed - I think that's fair, don't you? They also would appreciate we cover their transportation and provide some sort of lodging - other than their own car. Because we need props and costumes to tell our story - and can't get those for free - part of the proceeds will go towards that as well. Location is also important - I tried to shoot it in my backyard but I'm afraid my neighbors inevitably will decide to be in the film as extras or worse - photo-bomb some scenes - Yikes! Please don't let that happen. We also need to cover the expenses of the equipment needed to shoot the actual thing - and someone who actually knows how to use the equipment. I barely know how to use my iPhone :((
Additionally, there is one person dedicated just to fulfill the Kickstarter rewards. Throughout this process, she will be continually updating and ensuring you the backer receive ALL you paid for!
