Warren Brown is Smuggling Precious Cargo in Drama’s Exclusive Clip

Cargo

(L-R): Actors Warren Brown and Jimmy Jean-Louis star in writer-director Kareem Mortimer’s drama, ‘Cargo.’

Life’s most precious cargo, humans, are being smuggled into America, and is raising a vital call for empathy in troubled times. That demand for change is being made in the upcoming crime drama, ‘Cargo,’ which is inspired by true events, and examines the world’s refugee crisis from a very local perspective. The film, which is about a man who reluctantly accepts a job smuggling Haitians to Florida, will be released in theaters May 30 by Artist Rights Distribution.

In honor of the largest Bahamian movie project to date receiving an American theatrical distribution, ShockYa is premiering an exclusive new clip from ‘Cargo.’ The clip features actor Warren Brown’s protagonist, Kevin, as he meets actor Jimmy Jean-Louis’ character, Jean, at a dock. Kevin helps Jean load the people they’re smuggling into his boat for transport.

In addition to Brown and Jean-Louis, the drama also stars Gessica Geneus, Persia White, Omar J. Dorsey and Jamie Donnelly. ‘Cargo’ was written and directed by Kareem Mortimer.

Artist Rights Distribution has released the following synopsis for ‘Cargo’:

When his income as a fisherman proves woefully insufficient to cover his son’s school fees, Kevin turns to human smuggling in order to raise desperately needed funds. Kevin finds that he’s good at this dangerous yet profitable vocation—good enough to trust himself with smuggling his own girlfriend and her son to the US. But when faced with having to abandon refugees at sea far from Miami shores, Kevin is suddenly forced to reassess his responsibilities.
