13 years ago, Jane Arcs was condemned to death after brutally killing her opponent in a underground street fight. Now, in just 24 hours, Jane will be executed for her crime. During her 13 years on Death Row, Jane has undergone a major evolution under the tutelage of a fellow inmate and Qi Gong Master Xin, learning the way of Qi Gong and ostensibly gaining supernatural abilities. As the day of her execution arrives, Jane embraces her punishment in the spirit of transformation. Max Stone, Jane's boyfriend as well as correctional officer and part of the execution tie down team, has very different ideas. He is willing to do anything to save Jane. Will he kill others to save her life? Or will Jane help him to see the light and to let her go? The Way, climaxes as the essence of spirit collides with the raw power of desire, ultimately bring the audience full circle in seeing how both are essential to being human.
The Way, an action drama. A story of brutal underground street fighting, spiritual martial arts, family, grief, and ultimate redemption. Galvanized through radical self responsibility and the true freedoms it brings. As a film maker I capture and integrate emerging masculine and feminine models in story telling today. Beginning with a strong female lead and a cast that is multi-racial and cultural, mirroring humanity.
Also I integrate the spiritual way of living, expressed through the esoteric and practical lifestyle sense. Not with an intent to teach or preach, but as an aspect of the characters way of life, effecting their paths, choices, and experiences. Turning a prison into a temple for example and recognizing that the Human experience, is the spiritual experience. The depth and breadth of these elements make for an interesting, compelling and entertaining film that is simple and elegant in it delivery.
