One dark night on the road to adulthood, a teenage boy must choose between his friends and his future.
Writer/director: Michael Milardo
Producer: Jesse Savath
I wrote Roam with the intention of telling a simple and timeless coming-of-age story. It’s about the moment you realize your friends might not be who you thought they were, and the only person who can change the direction of your life is you.
Underneath that Roam is also a story about the power of technology and the hold it has on us, how it’s engineered to make us hopeful for a better future – a future which may or may not be coming.
