RECOMMENDED:  ”[A] compelling, melancholy look at what becomes of a sidetracked vision.”  -Newcity Stage

“[A] worthy experience that brings… a new twist to an old genre.”  -TimeOut Chicago

“[Sean] Thomas’ sadness captures the horror his work wracks up and [Anthony] Stamilio’s goofy energy belies the devastation his character leaves behind.”  -Newcity Stage

“[A] dark, dark variation on the Pinocchio story … Caffrey raises disquieting questions about what it means to be human.”  -Chicago Reader

When a young man blazes a trail of blood and destruction throughout the American West, his father embarks on a quest to stop him.  But as he makes his way through the ghost towns his son has visited, he questions how evil the boy’s intentions truly are, and if his terrible acts are somehow bringing him closer to humanity.  Blending conventions of classic Western cinema with shades of Cormac McCarthy and Pinocchio, this co-production with the side project explores the genetic inheritance of sin and violence.
