Barbados/St. Lucia | 2014
Elliot Bishop, is homeless and searching for hope in a world that doesn’t know he exists. He’s given up all he has except for distant memories of happier times. From the coffee shop, to the sidewalk, to the cemetery, the City is Elliot’s stomping ground. There is no navigation system to guide him through hunger and self-doubt, all he can do is continue to sharpen his skills and strengthen his resolve as he prepares for the challenge of his lifetime. “Egress,” is a story of a man forced to evolve from his past to transcend the painful sacrifice of the present so he can bravely grasp the opportunity to create his future.

Richard, a 10-year-old boy who lives with his grandparents, has an attachment to his football as if it were his best friend. As time progresses, the ball develops blemishes and scratches as a result of their activities together. The lesson learned is simple: a friend is a friend no matter the person—or thing.

At a glance, Susan is a quiet, pensive housecleaner who takes her job seriously. A single phone call is all that she needs to clean up the mess and leave things pristine. But initial impressions rarely, if ever, give the full scope of a person—especially in the case of Susan.
