    • Synopsis
    • Sulphur City, the once tranquil and quaint interurban space made up of charming canals, cute little alleyways and kids sitting at the ice cream counter. Now, a cesspit of gangsters, hookers, thieves and crooked cops. Only the old and nearly dead remember “the good old days." The flashing blue lights and sirens echoing between the narrow streets is a common theme as the worn-out cops fueled on shitty pay-checks, instant coffee and cheap cigarettes remain at war with everyone else.

      Then there’s Sam Sertie, a failing record store owner with only his cats to keep him company. Down on his luck, he's addicted to internet dating and self-help seminars from “change your life” guru Sid Lake. Then, out of nowhere, a sack of diamonds falls into his lap after Sertie's the wrong guy, in the wrong place, at the wrong time. But emboldened by Sid, he hides the diamonds in a place no one, possibly even himself, will ever find them.

      Kidnapped, Sertie literally faces his own demons as he’s held captive by his own double. When he mysteriously loses his sight, he's only fueled by the predator within himself as he discovers sinister secrets about the city's murderous past, and murderous present!

      Whose vision is true? Bergman, the cynical cop who in a later timeline tries to decipher the events; Lacroix, the crooked cop who negotiates for Sertie’s release; Magdalena, mob "cleaner” with her own agenda; or Sertie, who might just have a lesson for us all.


      BLINDFOLD VISION is a Falcon Grove production, with principal photography scheduled for June 2020.
