    • Synopsis
    • Charlie (Matthew Dennis Lewis, Steven Soderbergh’s Netflix mini-series “Godless”) is a young loner who works at a diner for a mirthless boss (Academy Award nominee® Julie Delpy, “Before Midnight”), struggling to even pay his rent. Seemingly his only friend is regular customer Mr. Jones (Roger Guenveur Smith, “American Gangster”), an affable businessman with ties to the mob. Jones also runs a nightclub, which Charlie visits and soon begins his obsession with one of the dancers, Summer (Roxane Mesquida, star of Gregg Araki's new series "Now Apocalypse”).

      One evening, after an odd exchange with a bartender who says luck is coming his way, Charlie crosses paths with a blind homeless man who is his exact double, a doppelganger. Perplexed and intrigued by the discovery, Charlie invites the man into his life. What follows is a twisted, philosophical examination of desperation, fear, love and greed, told through the lens of classic film noir, with a celestial twist.
