Directed by Shawn Telford

Seattle 2013 98 mins. In English

In his debut feature, Seattle filmmaker Shawn Telford follows four individuals living in
 a small town dominated by drugs and brutality and their lasting desire to mold their lives into something more meaningful. In an attempt to escape his failing health, Grampa embarks with his grandson Ian on an adventure full of shady deals and risk taking. They meet Ellie, a troubled teenager searching for love and salvation from Zack, a young romantic whose future hinges on how he reacts to temptation. While Ellie, Zack, Grampa, Ian, and their comrades have had very different life experiences, they all need to get out of BFE.
