Based on a true story set in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a disillusioned Marine veteran John Keller must confront his inner demons and a racial standoff to save people trapped in his apartment building before violence erupts or worse...

"Wow. THE AMERICAN CAN is built on such a powerful core group of characters. John Keller is an extraordinarily sympathetic protagonist fighting internal wars on multiple fronts. The diverse cast offers a deep thematic look at a cross section of racism in the American South against an evocative backdrop in which people tend to show their true colors. Overall, the piece is highly cinematic, driven by a singular emotional core and a stylistic verisimilitude in its mixed media approach."
