Synopsis

Caleb and Kim were the perfect couple until the night she was senselessly murdered. Now Caleb seeks vengeance. After the murder of the woman he loves, Caleb sets off down a dark path of violence he finds increasingly difficult to come back from. With the persuasion of a dark spirit, Caleb’s actions of coping cut off normalcy in his life and draw in the one person he still cares about, Kim’s brother.

Director Biography – Keenan Duke

He has a passion for telling stories that shed light on communities and issues people might not be aware of with the belief that film and television have the power to open people’s hearts and minds to those who are different from themselves. Keenan currently works in the Accounting Department for NBC’s entertainment news program “Access”.

Director Statement

The idea of “The Road Not Taken” came about through a conversation Cruz Castillo and I were having about a true story where a woman was shot and killed, while walking with her boyfriend, for reasons still unknown. We kept asking ourselves what could’ve possibly brought about such a brutal act, and more interestingly, how the boyfriend must’ve felt and coped with witnessing the murder of his girlfriend. It was with this notion we decided to take creative liberties and bring this story to the screen. During the process of making our story come to life we made a concerted effort to build a team that would represent people of various backgrounds and ethnicities both in front of the camera and behind. We wanted this to be a passion project people of underrepresented cultures could come together and work on to improve their respective crafts and showcase their abilities.
