The sexy, mysterious neo-noir SOLE PROPRIETOR combines a dreamlike narrative with gritty realism, exploring themes of subjugation, loyalty, and the transcendence of love and sacrifice, in a world of cruel nihilism. In a desolate, shabbily furnished loft apartment in Chinatown former CIA contractor Crowley arrives from the other side of the world. He has paid a large sum of money to purchase a new identity. He is ready to start over. However, the Handler explains the terms and the deal has changed. In lieu of money, new credentials will be furnished upon the completion of a task, the parameters of which have yet to be determined or defined. No details, no timeline, no choice. Days go by so Crowley finds Sophie, a prostitute on the internet. He goes to her and they have something unique. Something unusual, when they are together. Sophie knows she can get to him. He is exactly the man she needs. Sophie needs a favor. Someone she cares about is in trouble, and she's willing to risk everything to get her loose. The authorities are no good, because the authorities are the perpetrators. Sophie knows how to get what she wants. Especially from simple men like Crowley. SOLE PROPRIETOR is the story of a disparate group of people with no place in the world, struggling to take back their lives from the corrupt authorities that control them.
