Set in modern time, The Shooting Star Salesman is the story of a 19th century ageless Salesman (Yancey Arias, Chavez) who is granted the magical ability to align individuals with their own unique shooting star to wish upon. His rare gift becomes a curse when he outlives his family, turning him into a recluse and breaking the magic of the shooting star machine. As he ventures out to restore people's belief in shooting stars, he picks up a curious 8 year old tag along named Elijah (Elijah Velarde, Casa De Mi Padre) who starts to question if perhaps it's the Salesman himself who needs to have his faith restored. An unlikely partnership is formed as they embark on a journey to restore the faith of humanity. But as their friendship grows, the Salesman is torn between continuing his legacy or renouncing his magical gift for the chance to reunite with the family he lost a lifetime ago.
PRAYERS IN THE DARK - It's The Exorcist meets Reservoir Dogs in this suspenseful tale of an underground Brotherhood that battles the demonic forces thriving in the shadows of society. On the eve of what’s to be the next "simple gig" to save the soul of a young woman, they find themselves unwillingly up against an Evil more powerful than any one of them has ever seen - or so they think. Their faith, trust and friendship is put to the test as they discover that the true path to redemption... is sacrifice!
