As a young single father, Gabriel isn’t the best caretaker. Although he loves his son Jamie, Gabriel spends much of his time partying or wandering the city with his best friend Joel, often leaving Jamie alone. Reckless and carefree, Gabriel and Joel are partners-in-crime, chasing after adventures and adrenaline rushes. But everything about the friends’ dynamic changes when Joel’s girlfriend Corey is thrown into the mix. From the moment he meets his best friend’s girlfriend, Gabriel finds himself completely infatuated with Corey, creating a consuming love triangle that threatens to destroy everyone involved. Emotions run high on all sides, and as their complicated dynamic descends into madness, Gabriel’s inner turmoil spreads outward into the world around him. A dark romantic fantasy with its own myths and tall tales, SOUL OF A BEAST uses surreal themes and beautiful images to transport viewers to an entirely new world. —G.S.
