Set in Indiana in 1987, Pike Ables (Randy Spence, “House of Cards”) is charged with a murder he can’t remember in the midst of heroin withdrawal. Now, he must make a decision: go to jail or head for the Canadian border to start a new life. His only hope is his younger brother, Jack (Jordon Hodges, Sand Castles), a frustrated psychiatrist and soon-to-be father who is ready to leave everything behind – including his pregnant wife – to try and save him. In The Shade Shepherd, things aren’t as they seem when the brothers try to navigate out of the darkness and into the light. With no food or drugs, and only a few wet cigarettes, the two embark on a journey that tests the meaning of love, family, forgiveness, life and death.
From director and co-writer Chris Faulisi (A Proper Violence), and winner of “Best Feature Film” at the DaVinci Film Festival and Mindfield Film Festival Los Angeles, The Shade Shepherd also stars Caroline Newton (“Borrasca”) and Brett Baker (Identity Thief), and is produced by B2 Entertainment.
