LOGLINE

Eric Bauman is down on his luck after losing his job and fiancee and sees no way up. 

Desperate and out of options, a human angel appears...

 

A story about people, who are afraid to confront the truth in their lives, especially the main character Eric Bauman, who escapes in lies, situations, but later he experiences consequences.

 

Misunderstandings of a Jewish couple. 

 

 The deeper layer of my movie is that our world, especially Los Angeles, is unnecessarily brutal,

we reject people, who are broken, disabled, unsuccessful. Somebody sleeps on the street it is his or her fault. They are "losers". We are so busy thinking about our own lives, we lose our empathy for others until it is too late, and we find ourselves on the street.
