BASTARD is a feature film to be shot in May and June of 2018.

Be part of finding out the truth on Facebook and Instagram.

What if you woke up one day to find out that your life has been a lie?

Would you continue to live in the lie or try to invent a new reality for yourself?

When Oscar, a young art painter from Brooklyn, finds out after the death of his mother that suspicious payments have been made to her account, he’s determined to find out who and why.

His investigation takes him on a journey from the Lower East Side’s art world to wealthy Upper Manhattan.

What he finds out could change his life for better or worse, but there’s no escaping the truth.
