22 Fillmore is a dramatic – fantasy, that chronicles the life of Jeff, a desperate drug addict, gripped in a downward spiral and haunted by images of his abusive Dad. After being served with an eviction notice, losing his job, being physically abused, and shot in a drug deal gone bad – Jeff ends up in the hospital.
After the police arrive, Jeff flees and overdoses on the “22 Fillmore” – a rough, inner-city San Francisco bus line. His world is turned upside down when he enters a trippy, alternate reality and three people from his real life turn into enlightened “guides”. They whiz back and forth in time, to allow Jeff to witness his past with a fresh perspective.
Jeff is faced with two possible futures and must finally confront his Dad, his past, and his own mortality – all in a climactic crash. Will he be able to embrace these new lessons and find hope for his life?
22 Fillmore is a moral tale that expresses hope for the individual and humanity. With startling power and beauty, it graphically explores the themes of addiction, abuse, despair and recovery. Lessons touch on taking responsibility for one’s life to remove harmful patterns and embrace the true self.
