THE SHIFT is a modern-day, sci-fi story of faith that takes a lot of its cues from the Book of Job. THE SHIFT’s Job—a character named Kevin—faces off with a mysterious stranger, known only as "The Benefactor", in a way that exposes his tricks and the lies used against people by shining a light that cuts through all that darkness. Kevin will be presented with concrete temptations most people can relate to, and audiences will see how his choices alter the world around him. The sci-fi plot that lets Kevin "shift" between reality and an alternate dystopian world shows with dramatic allegory the way lives can be changed by small, daily choices. In the end, Job proved worthy of God’s faith in him. The question is: can Kevin overcome the temptation of untold wealth and power to do the same?
THE SHIFT will be distributed by Angel Studios, a new movie and TV studio platform putting the power of Hollywood into the hands of everyday Americans.
