The Thief

Nathan is a thief. Edward is an alcoholic jazz genius. When Nathan sees Edward play, something unexpected happens, but he owes Waleed so he knows he’ll have to improvise.

The Thief is a short film about pressure at home and on the streets and looking for a way out when circumstances are closing in. It was performed and crewed by professionals and ex-prisoners.
