Near Change

A Film by André Sogliuzzo

Synopsis

Sometimes in life you find yourself a crossroads between who you are, and the life you find yourself living. Dino and his best friend and associate Tony, are mid-level mafia foot soldiers. As they wait for breakfast in a diner, on an ordinary day like any other, Dino realizes he has reached his fork in the road. Unless “This” is all there is…something is going to have to change.
