A relationship drama about two entangled strangers' pursuit to escape their own personal misfortunes.

Kickstarter Staff & Vimeo Curated Pick.

Synopsis

Ryan had a bad night. Her phone is dead. And in a moment of indecision, she just left everything on the F train. Desperate, she turns to Nick, an off-duty MTA worker of suspect morals. The two strangers enter into a contentious deal to chase down the subway, before it vanishes with Ryan’s luggage and her chances of getting home. What's the worst that can happen?

Note from the Director

For the past three years, I’ve been writing and directing short films about understated and heartfelt stories that play out in our everyday lives. 

Those films – Brothers and ICE HOCKEY – have gone on to screen across the country, earning laurels from Independent Film Festival Boston, San Francisco International Film Festival and the Montclair Film Festival. ICE HOCKEY was also featured on Vimeo, garnering 35k+ views to date, and part of Reel13 on PBS. 

Neither film would have been possible without the financial support of the 120+ backers, who raised $5k+ to help cover the cost of post-production, festival submissions and part of the production budget. But even greater than the money raised, backers of the projects took a personal stake in the life of these films during their completion and after their release.

In the end, the success of this film won’t be measured in dollars, but in whether it can find an engaged audience. That’s why I am releasing a digital copy of the film with every pledge. If this is the kind of film you want to see, please contribute at any level and share this project with your friends, family and colleagues.

All funds raised will go toward the completion of the film, festival submissions and beyond.
