As she enters the witness protection program, a young woman (Jennifer Robyn Jacobs) struggles with her identify, aided by a US Marshal (Kevin Reeverts) who sees each person he helps as a job. In the end, they each discover humanity in themselves and one another.
The mystery surrounding witness protection fascinates me and, as a filmmaker, I like telling stories that connect with regular people. “Choice” is a short film about a regular person (Jennifer Robyn Jacobs) who is thrown a curveball most would never experience by entering the Witness Protection Program. Her experience could happen to anyone, which is why I chose to focus on some of the seemingly minute struggles she faces in reconciling her previous life with the identity she is given. Her journey is set against a desert backdrop with a humorless US Marshal (Kevin Reeverts) as her guide. I hope you enjoy our film, and I look forward to seeing you at the movies!
