THE SHOTGUN MESSAGE by A. Rey Pamatmat
Directed by Evan T. Cummings

Journalist Kent MacDonald is no saint and certainly no savior. At least he never meant to be until 17-year-old Jared winds up missing. Moving through a lurid world of online sex, naïve parents, and kids who know too much, it’s up to Kent to find Jared, bring him home, and perhaps rescue both their souls in the process.
