Rule One: Obey the rules? Not in Detective Peter Ward’s vocabulary.
Rule Two: Approach a strung-out junkie tactfully and carefully? Yawn.
Rule Three: Don’t think, just act.
What do you get when you combine a hostage situation, a live grenade, and one rogue detective?
Meet: State of Ward – a tense, edge-of-your-seat short film starring Superman himself, Dean Cain.
From award-winning Executive Producer, Director, and Filmmaker, Ron Jacobs comes a suspenseful story of a corrupt cop whose negotiation skills are put to the ultimate test when he must thwart a meth-addict from releasing a grenade on himself and his hostage girlfriend. The clock is ticking. Will they make it out alive?
No one ever said it was easy wearing a badge. And certainly no one is truly prepared to walk the thin line between life and death. But when it comes to snuffing out perps, it might be worth taking a gamble on a troublemaker with a penchant for rule breaking. While Detective Peter Ward is a far cry from a saint, maybe his unconventional methods are just what the situation calls for.
Keep an eye out for the upcoming release of Rogue Matter’s Indie film, State of Ward.
