Wheels

Dreaming of a better future, a young DJ confronts his family struggles in the streets of Brooklyn.

Director's Statement

We all Struggle to balance obligations while remaining true to our personal dreams. I've always latched onto the idea that the steps to reach a goal are relative. For some, it's winning the fight, for others it's finding love. When the stakes are high, success and failure become the coinflip that measures self worth. Wheels explores the intense emotions connected to passion and how the outcomes shape one's world view.
