A short film about finding hope in unexpected places

Charlie is presented with an escape from his deep depression when the mysterious man that he has been drawing suddenly knocks on his door.

The Cast

Kyle Mac as “Charlie”

Kyle Mac is most recognized for his series regular and recurring roles in the three NETFLIX original series: HEMLOCK GROVE, 21 THUNDER & BETWEEN.

“The subject matter can be difficult to discuss openly in our daily lives. This film has the opportunity to visually & emotionally connect its audience to this paralyzing feeling within Charlie. Which is ultimately a universal truth inside all of us.”

Bill Kates as “Sid Penrose”

Bill Kates took a small thirty year pause in his acting career to get sidetracked as a radio producer and broadcaster, in places like WBCN, Boston, K-Rock in New York, and XM Satellite Radio, where he co-created the comedy channels, 60’s on 6, and more. Now he’s in Hollywood, building up his resume with voice, acting, and sound design work, as a young man should.

“I love The Twilight Zone, and I’m drawn to characters with some mystery to them, maybe a bit of mystical power. The description sounded intriguing, so I applied. As soon as I read the sides for the audition, I was sure I wanted to give it a shot. I’m very grateful for the chance to portray Mr. Penrose.”
