THE GUN (from 6 to 7:30 p.m.) ~ S Y N O P S I S

When a biker discovers a discarded gun near a highway, a series of events unfolds, chaining together the lives of several desperate people. Although from entirely different worlds, each shares the same fears and hardships, and believes that the only way out of their dilemmas comes from possessing the gun.

While the gun is being sold at a local pawnshop, a nervous taxi driver witnesses a disturbing crime, and is convinced to get a firearm for self-protection. Meanwhile, a homeless man and a young drifter, both motivated by the need for money and the dread of failure, wander the streets in search of opportunity.

The taxi driver buys the same gun found near the highway, only to have it stolen by the homeless man minutes later. Through an extraordinary set of circumstances, the gun then passes from one person to the next, infecting each with its deadly aura - or is it simply magnifying their own dangerous desires?

The Gun is a unique new film by internationally acclaimed director Vladimir Alenikov. Filmed in real time (90 minutes) and with only fifteen scenes - each with no cuts - the complex choreography and brilliant camera work puts you right in the middle of the action and takes you on a trip through the minds of people so desperate for The Gun that they are ready to kill for it.
