Straight Down Low
2013 / USA / 25 Minutes / Zach Wechter
A classic murder mystery set on the gang-ruled streets of Brookside, CA. A student moonlighting as a gumshoe investigates a local murder for an old flame who’s convinced her thug boyfriend is innocent of the crime, despite all evidence to the contrary. Which would be just fine for the student, if he could shake the nagging feeling she might be right. Now he’s in a race against time and the impenetrable virtues of gangland to stop a war that everyone, including the man whose life he’s trying to save, seems to want.
