PRIDE. FAMILY. REDEMPTION.
ABOVE ALL, LOVE.
LIVES FROM EITHER SIDE OF THE LAW, RISE OUT OF MISERY.

Synopsis

Daniel and Elena live somewhere in middle America. They crave love and acceptance, but from all the wrong places. Daniel is an unassuming hitman and enforcer with an even darker secret. Elena is an unlikely cop struggling with revenge. In this stylized allegory we see a window into Daniel and Elena’s lives, different, yet very similar.
