Synopsis: In the outskirts of New Mexico's desert, a chronic gambler befriends a loan shark in order to win enough money to pay rent for himself and his wife. However, after losing the loan shark’s money in two hands of poker he's forced to come up with desperate methods to repay his debt. His journey becomes intertwined with a small town crime circle, which includes a hitman from the UK who has recently escaped to the U.S. seeking asylum from his prior career, yet happens to be a target of the loan shark's boss.

PUDGEON

Joe Friend

Synopsis: A pudgy, young New York City pigeon must learn discipline, confidence and teamwork to rescue the hen-of-his-dreams from an evil hawk. Pudgeon is a coming-of-age tale with a modern twist as our hero battles a litany of formidable foes: self-confidence issues, school bullies, a crooked real estate developer, a hungry alley cat, and the hawk mafia.

Pudgeon heads into the school year blissfully unaware of the challenges ahead. Immediately he runs afoul of the school bullies, is informed he is at the age where he must compete in the big race, and is in the sights of an evil hawk. Teeder, Pudgeon's father, needs to carefully draw the line between providing support for his son and letting him grow up and find his own way. And "The Almond Brothers" are just looking to fit in somewhere, man...

What is a young pigeon to do with all this pressure?
