About this submission
We find 3 guys and a boy thrown together and they are charged and mystified. Each ignites in the other a future, a feeling for the future. Bodegas, and Eastern Churches right in the LA Suburb-i-city.
PROFUSAL is a centered-off-centered force. A mountain of a being that has been dislodged from his site. He wanders now way outside the mainstream life that he was master of, to find insight and felt meaning in fringe denizens and journeyers.
JOHN BAPTIST takes on a hapless saviour who slips into a spectral being, a floating existence who needs the gravity, care - love of others.
HOSPITAL BOY is the mysterious x-factor. He affects the others and is embedded in their lives, but both PROFUSAL and BAPTIST don’t know where or how they know him.
And finally, the COP is the ordinary extra-ordinary that moves the others. Also, lost in the repetition of the everyday, the job, he himself finds a direction. Perhaps it’s always been there.
BAPTIST’S HAND presents the story of three guys and a boy who find out - for their lives and in their lives - that the only way straight is straight, the only way around is curved, and the only way up is up.
