Storyline: The small, dying, rural Southern town of Rondo is being held hostage by a deadly, politically well-connected drug trafficking monster, but a mysterious stranger who refers to himself simply as the MAN, may provide hope for the town's terrified residents. These people are exhausted, worn down and afraid, and should look so.

[ANTONIO] 30s, a hardworking family man, he is honored, gracious and hospitable when the Man, a former Green Beret, asks for some food as payment for any handyman chores that need doing.

[ROSA] Early 30s. She is Antonio's wife, mother of a young boy. Toughly self-protective, she immediately grabs for her rifle when the Man shows up, hungry but willing to work. Later, impressed by the Man's graciousness, her attitude softens...2 speeches & 4 lines, 2 scenes.

At  ACS, we believe that if we provide filmmakers an arena to exhibit their talents, and film enthusiasts a healthy diet of quality programming, we can inspire more Arkansans to make and watch more films. By supporting filmmakers, festivals, theaters and young people interested in filmmaking throughout the state, we hope to create statewide network, pool Arkansas’s resources and be an umbrella organization that feeds all things film. We believe a rising tide lifts all boats.


connect to create.

To be a filmmaker, we have to connect to create. A painter needs a brush, paint and a canvas. A director needs a writer, a cinematographer, a sound mixer, production designer, editor, actors, distributors, and an audience. We cannot do it alone. This art form forces one to collaborate and thus, creates jobs. Filmmaking is unique in the arts in this way. It takes an army.
