The proof of that is in the proverbial pudding we’re about to feed you: a killer short film known as, As They Continue to Fall.
Nikhil Bhagat directs the short, which features the acting talents of Burt Culver (Bastard), Michael Felbinger, and Kevin Marron (No Saints for Sinners).
The story focuses on an aging drifter who hunts fallen angels in a desolate city. Society may have turned its back on him, but that doesn’t stop him from moving forward in his endless search for fallen angels.
