About the Film:
Synopsis - Born and raised in a quiet, industrial city, Oliver has grown comfortable, but without direction. Still living in his deceased parents’ house, he is contacted by a mysterious gentleman who gives him an odd task to complete. Without knowing the man or his motivation, he complies and is rewarded. The tasks continue and provide purpose, but soon he begins to question the man and his intentions. Frustrated and back on his own, Oliver crosses paths with a young photographer named Raina, who introduces new energy to his life. The two fall in love, and all is well until the man returns with one more task to complete. Will Oliver succumb to his demands and does he have a choice?
“There Are No Goodbyes” is a fictional story about choices and finding purpose in one’s life in the context of the current sociopolitical climate of blue-collar America. The film covers a mix of genres including: drama, romance, mystery, and science fiction. Scenes for “There Are No Goodbyes” have already been shot in Poland, Czech Republic, and Ireland. In January 2011, Lyons Den Productions will continue production in Erie, PA USA and expect to finish principal photography in the summer of 2011.
