Written and directed by Michael Mante and produced by Jennie Scott and Jamie Gamache with cinematography by Matthew Emvin Taylor, this short drama focuses on the decision of a young man to seek help and change his path. He’s helped along the way by the perception and compassion of a fellow Black man, who sees beyond Hansen’s wariness and hostility to his buried pain, as well as his true potential.
