An unconventional PhD dropout and his drifter best friend get tangled in a surreal web of murder and deceit in ROAD TO THE WELL, a dark, quirky thriller following in the footsteps of Blood Simple and Very Bad Things. From award-winning screenwriter and first-time filmmaker John Cvack, this festival favorite – an Official Selection at the San Diego International and Lone Star Film Festivals, and winner of “Best of Fest” at the Long Beach Indie International Film Festival — arrives on DVD ($19.99srp) and leading digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Sony PlayStation on December 20 from Candy Factory Films.
After dropping out of his doctoral Philosophy program, the unconventional Frank (Laurence Fuller) begins to fall into a mundane lifestyle, made complete with a menial office job. After catching his girlfriend with his boss, his old best friend, Jack (Micha Parker), arrives in town and hastily arranges a rendezvous with a strange and beautiful lady of the night for his down-in-the-dumps pal. However, during the steamy encounter, they’re viciously attacked, leaving the prostitute dead and Frank unconscious. After discovering his predicament, Jack convinces a drunk, panicked Frank to head up North, take a new job and, most importantly, bury the body. Thus, the duo embarks on a strange, dark and cerebral journey into the California Sierras, full of old friends, lost loves, eccentric in-laws, backwoods pimps, and a suspicious ex-Military Chaplain (Marshall R. Teague), all while seeking to discover who’s responsible for the murder.
