WINNER Best Foreign Film (short) at the AOF 2013 International Film Festival in LA
Nominated WAB Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role – Cengiz Dervis in ‘Drake’
Underground fighter Carter Drake (Cengiz Dervis) is begged by brother Finn to throw his next fight to get him out of trouble as he’s had to make a deal with some very dangerous people. Drake refuses to throw the fight and ends up killing his opponent. Unknowing to Drake the faustian agreement he’s brother has made will see Drake’s mental state challenged and him taken into a mental institution.
However, is this all really happening or is Drake creating this illusion of the supernatural to deal with him killing a fighter, losing his family due to anger issues and not protecting his brother as a child.
Drake believes he’s being drugged and manipulated by a very dangerous demonic organisation and the clock is ticking…
