NARRATIVE SHORT | WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY YURI ALVES
Dane thought he left his demons and his drug addiction behind him, but his first day out of prison challenges both his promise to go clean and his very survival. Having exhausted the sympathy of others in neighborhood, Dane’s desperation leads him to test his fate… and grapple with whether his journey leads him to salvation or back into the jaws of addiction. Filmmaker Yuri Alves presents a gripping, tense study of a flawed man teetering on the edge of redemption and self-destruction.
