Synopsis:
These simple words by William James set it all in motion. The search for a kidnapped child - the quest for redemption by a lowlife drug dealer. Set in the dark belly of Los Angeles' criminal underworld, 'ARC' is the story of Paris Pritchert (Peter Facinelli), a former police officer turned drug dealer and addict who embarks on a quest to find a missing child in the hope of redeeming his eroding character. Like all addicts, Paris' confidence is completely dependent on the drugs in his system and, in this case, his firm belief that he can succeed if he can just stay both high and alive long enough to see it through.
Paris enlists the help of Maya Gibbs (Raina-Simone Moore) an African American prostitute well versed in the language of the street and the words of Maya Angelou and Nadine Gordimer. The path of this dysfunctional and unlikely duo crosses with those of the child's parents, a doctor with a penchant for soliciting "street boys" (Garett M Brown), a self ascribed King of Porn (Alex Sol), and a hardened cop with more scams than the most adept street hustler. Told through a variety of visual techniques and colour schemes, 'ARC' unfolds as Paris' search leads to places he never expected. It is a search filled with the grimness of an addict's life, the shadiness of perverse characters and the budding friendship of two people with nothing to lose and everything to gain.
