We do good things and bad things. Sometimes we do whatever it takes to get what we want. Sometimes we take something for granted. And there are other times when we give without expecting in return. This story is a journey of a coin in one day. Which travels hand to hand from people to people with different purposes and stories. A representation of human emotional behavior.

Where the Red Fox Lies
What would happen if a person really did suffer from spontaneous combustion?
While this film does contain elements of horror, suspense, fantasy and sci-fi, at its core, Where the Red Fox Lies is an emotional drama about two sisters trying to reconnect and mend their fractured relationship.
Starring the extremely talented Rebekah Downs, Akasha Banks Villalobos & Brian Villalobos, the goal of this short film is to find real, honest moments between people who find themselves in increasingly fantastical situations.
