A woman hijacks a family trip in pursuit of a deceitful kidnapper.
Writer/director: Seth Smith
Producers: Jason Levangie, Nancy Urich, Marc Tetreault
This film came together after a conversation with Taylor Kirk of Timber Timbre about collaborating together on a project.
He had written the song I Am Coming To Paris To Kill You as part of a series of murder ballads. I was drawn to it and for whatever reason kept visualizing a new-wave noir. And I always liked the idea of a guy that kidnaps dogs for ransom, like as a job … but he’s not very good at it.
Anyway, this film didn’t end up being about him so much.
