Official 48hr Film Project Film

We had the privilege of participating in the Buffalo 48 Hour Film Project, an intense and exhilarating challenge for filmmakers. In just 48 hours, our team at Expressed Entertainment LLC wrote, shot, and edited a dynamic and engaging short film that was well received by the audience at the premier. We are honored to have worked with our incredible cast and crew on this fantastic project and look forward to sharing it with everyone as we await the results of the competition/. Stay tuned for the results.

Madison’s six-year-old son, CJ was stolen from her.  Now ten years later, she is trying to make a fresh start.  However, when she sees a young man who reminds her of CJ, she becomes obsessed and determined once again to get her son back.  The only thing standing in her way is the young man’s mom, Brenda.  Brenda is also determined to protect her son, Brian, from this stalker.  Things are pushed to a breaking point because everyone can only see from their line of sight, including Detective Sydney Winters.  Sydney is trying to do what’s right and protect a friend.  All roads lead to one conclusion, or do they? Is the end the end or just the beginning?
