A brazen theft leads a newly married couple on a wild chase across the streets of Los Angeles and into a complex intersection of race, justice, and self discovery.
Based on true events.
THE CHASE is
written, produced by, and starring NICK JANDL (Nashville, Lucifer, Chicago Fire)
directed by MIKE DOYLE (Jersey Boys, The Invitation, Narcos)
starring NICK JANDL, CHALEY ROSE, KEVIN DANIELS, KEN KIRBY, ANDREW LEES, BRANDON FOBBS, SHARAÉ NIKAI
The Chase is an authentic LA tragicomedy that challenges the audience to tell right from wrong, hero from villain. As it sprints across back alleyways and busy streets, this short film explores white privilege, socioeconomic conflict, and of course, spousal dedication.
In a big city like Los Angeles, the melting pot bubbles furiously. This story reveals a few of the key social and cultural ingredients through a narrative that only diverges slightly from the real-life events that occurred on that fateful night.
