Act of God
Stuart, a disabled man, is in a tight spot. His caregivers are abandoning him and for good reason: he’s an asshole, a fact that becomes quickly apparent to the replacement tasked with getting him out of bed.
Stuart’s commute to work is interrupted by the discovery of a $100 bill lying on the sidewalk, just out of reach. It flutters away as soon as he moves towards it, leading him on a chase that forces him to reconsider his toxic ideal of self sufficiency.
Written and directed by a disabled man (Spencer Cook) and his actual caregiver (Parker Smith), Act of God explores the tension between self reliance and true independence.
