Memories can either fuel our existence or eat away at us like a disease. In the not-too-distant future, Dr. Theodore Maine is on the cusp of losing his job at Janus Labs where he is developing research for Alzheimers treatment. That is, until a mysterious visitor named Obee changes his life forever.

Directed By: Alexander Jeffery

Written By: Paul Petersen

Starring: Paul Petersen, Cailey Fleming

Director’s Bio: Born in Canada, raised in Arkansas, and schooled all over the world, Alexander has always carried a deep love for storytelling. He graduated from the University of Nebraska in 2011 with a BFA in Film and a BA in Theatre Performance. This training gives Alexander an ability to relate to actors, but also the technical wherewithal behind the lens. In 2015, Alexander’s film ‘The Bespoke Tailoring of Mister Bellamy’ won the Grand Prize and Best Actor at the Louisiana Film Prize and has gone on to receive notoriety across the festival circuit, including the Academy-qualifying Cleveland International Film Festival. He founded Bespoke Works LLC with Paul Petersen at the end of 2015 and together they seek to tell character-driven stories with heart.
