Cape Town (2013)

Feature and Trailer (at 3:00):

Roland Thompson (Aaron Brown) is a disgraced film composer who has been off the grid for five years. He is called back into action when overzealous, strapped-for-cash director Chip Hastings (Jonathan Henderson) needs a composer who is more concerned about the craft than the compensation. Since Roland sold all his instruments when he missed out on his gold statuette, producer Mr. Banks (Jay Long) suggests that Roland stay at the local university to use the college's resources to finish his work. Roland encounters composer's block when trying to create original work, but he engages in the creative student community around him and talks to writers and artists about their work. Through their stories, his music is brought to life. 'The Composer' is the prevailing storyline in the film, but throughout Roland's interaction with artists such as Jackie (Anna Breeden) and Dexter (Lamar Allen), and chief investigator Sarah Rush (Jessy Hughes), there are multiple narrative threads formed. 'Goodbye, Veronica Laken' is the story of a masked vigilante named the Dark Avenger (Britton McCall) who falls in love with cat burglar Veronica Laken (Ali Temple). 'Dinner of Champions' is about a father named Benjamin (Curtis Everitt) who is looking out for the welfare of his daughter Lena (Victoria Rigby), especially when not so gentlemen-ly callers such as John (Trisdon Runnels) come knocking. 'Beginnings' deals with Sarah Rush's quest to find a killer named Garment (Bethany Kuhn), whose manner of dispatching victims is...unexplainable.
