As the film synopsis reveals: “Will’s life turns upside down when he learns of his grandmother’s illness. Faced with no job or foreseeable future he decides an act of desperation is the only shot he has at turning it all around. When his best friend Dro offers him an opportunity at quick money he learns quickly that the world is a very unforgiving place.”
This is Crazy Hood Film Academy’s first short film, under Crazy Hood Productions. The production company previously released the documentary, Coming Home, which is currently airing on REVOLT. Coming Home: Haiti will premiere on REVOLT in June.
