About The Film


“Somewhere to Run is an unpredictable journey filled with intriguing characters, suspense, and heart.”

– S. Sawhny, Film Independent

In a dilapidated area of the warehouse district,
underground parties rage all night, sex and drugs are traded… people die.


A prostitute is gunned down in an alley.

A suicide-prevention worker finds himself in a run-down warehouse district, in a sleazy motel room with a gun, six bullets, and a cheap bottle of vodka. A sex-addicted teacher is seeking redemption, three rave kids are looking for a good time, and a bitter detective is searching for a serial killer.

The next three nights center around Leon’s diner, a refuge for the homeless, drug addicts, and prostitutes.  A respite for weekend warriors and late-night partiers, and a haven for travelers looking for a connection, settling on a cup of coffee, a slice of pie, or an omelet, before the sun rises.

A day that began with new hope, ends with a bullet.

We are currently raising funds for production.
