Synopsis: Like many young males at the cusp between youth and maturity, Jimmy Strange (Jeffery Baker) feels trapped in a harsh reality that is isolating him from the romanticized world he thought he would grow up living. Within minutes, Jimmy has a tragic break up with his girlfriend, Sara Harrison (Kristin Erickson), and finds out that his best friend, Isaac Nelson (Dillon Tucker), has got the two of them mixed up in a horrible gambling debt.

Heartbroken and dejected, Jimmy and Isaac must come up with twenty thousand dollars within 24 hours. Facing a dead end road and no other options, Jimmy and Isaac rob the gas station that Jimmy works at and head to Las Vegas to double their money. Along the way, Isaac can’t control his exuberance for life and ends up spending their money on the excesses that only Las Vegas has to offer. The guys are left hopeless when two call girls steal the little money that they have.

While hiding out in the desert in the outskirts of Las Vegas, Isaac and Jimmy learn a lot about themselves, their friendship, and the lives they want to lead. It is here that they leave their shadowy past behind them and take their first steps from youth to maturity.

Based on the award winning play, That Side of a Shadow is an explosive character and dialogue driven film that questions our relationships and how a life of excess will eventually catch up to you.
