The Rise

by Greg S. Reid

A story of simple re-discovery and finding answers to the hard questions sitting in the back of our minds. Somehow journalist, Jim MacDonald, missed the mark. In settling for balancing responsibilities and keeping up the low-key bachelor life, he buried his purpose and all the dreams that went with them. An unexpected urge to open up his storage locker prompts him towards a box sealed long ago. his itch to go down memory lane reveals footage of a time when Jim was in touch with what he was supposed to be doing with his life. Daunted by the challenge of taking a leap, he reaches out to his old buddy, Taz. With Taz’ support, Jim takes a step forward the only way he knows how: filming. Reel by reel, Jim collects snippets of characters armed with insight and experience, all nudging him closer to the things that matter most: a sense of purpose and the answer to why he is here.
