AN HONEST THIEF

honest thiefAn Honest Thief is a thriller about three small-time thieves from Detroit (Danny St. Louis, Johnny Good, and Carlson Kidde) who scheme to rip off a neighborhood pawnbroker of his valuable baseball card collection.

The pawnbroker, Honest Abe, unbeknownst to our trio of thieves, is also a serial killer, snatching young women from the streets of Detroit before taking them back to his pawnshop cellar. Some of Abe’s victims stroll unaccompanied into his pawnshop and vanish forever. As more girls disappear and the police are unable to find the killer, Detroit is gripped by a growing panic.

Through an antic, unpredictable series of events, Danny St. Louis is the unlikely crime stopper, discovering Honest Abe’s murderous, perverted secret life before executing the pawnbroker in a Detroit junkyard.

Throughout the action, Danny is searching for one honest man; Johnny is searching for some meaning in his thieving vocation while desperately trying to satisfy a disgruntled, yet devoted girlfriend; and Carl is loyal to no one.

Is there such a thing as An Honest Thief?

JOHN LEDGER

JOHN LEDGERIn the vein of the classic Leaving Las Vegas, except the drug of choice is sex – John Ledger is the owner of a Las Vegas auto dealership, who chases the demon of sex addiction while trying to maintain a normal life with his wife Mary and their teenage son, Brian. John has multiple affairs, romps with prostitutes and various risqué sexual encounters which feed his uncontrollable lust for “The Big O.” He loses touch with reality, falls in love with a street junkie nymphet, gets arrested and moves further away from his family and any type of spiritual life.

A friend tries to help, even the family Priest, but John’s denial is stagnant until he’s beaten by a hustler and hospitalized. Not wanting to lose his family and business, he reluctantly enters an eye-opening stint in a sexual addiction recovery program. Does it work? Does John get better? Or does he go back to his old double life? John Ledger is not a pretty story; however it’s a story many men and women have in common. Sex addiction, like alcoholism, is a disease that destroys the human psyche. It is a very real problem in today’s society and affects more than 40 million people worldwide, yet is rarely addressed
