COUNTERFEIT is a short film noir comedy about an aging male method actor, in character as a hitman, who accepts a “job” from a woman at a small town bar. She’s an undercover detective playing the role of a abused wife desperate to fix her situation.
Each of them attempts to deceive the other for their own objectives. But their cover stories quickly unravel when they meet later in his motel room, where the truth and its consequences play out in unexpected ways for both of them.
Due to the pandemic, we’ve been on an extended delay. But now we have our sights set on Fall 2021 for filming. There’s still time to help! Even a high-quality short requires substantial capital to pull off.
