Production Description

Casting a 12-minute short film by award winning Chapman University student filmmaker.

Director states: "This action/dark comedy revolves around Frank, a 50-year-old stay at home Dad and Stepfather. Most days after school, his angsty stepdaughter, Maddy, brings home her idiot boyfriend Thomas - who not only completely disregards Frank, but also has negatively influenced his younger kids. When Frank tells Maddy she can no longer see Thomas after he catches the two sleeping together in his home, they make a rash decision: kidnap her little brothers for the night, get a quick ransom from Frank, drop the kids back off, and head to San Francisco for a couple weeks. This is the story of how all that goes wrong."
