Cal Express

Shorts in Competition: Student

World Premiere

USA | 11 MINUTES | English |


Bouncing from job to job, Cal has been leading a mundane, shallow life. When he intrudes on his younger brother Ryan as he prepares for a date, one incident leads to another, unraveling the secrets that these two brothers hold. In 10 minutes, Cal is presented with a self-inflicted slap-in-the-face epiphany, which will make him choose to change once and for all… or maybe not.

Note: This film will screen as part of the Shorts: Wake-up Call program.
