Searching for answers about humanity and the meaning of life is rarely an easy task. That’s certainly the case for actor Cory Kays’ emotionally struggling character in the upcoming thriller, ‘Prodigy.’ The character’s fight to cope with the loss of his wife and reuniting with his estranged son will be highlighted when the movie is released in North America on VOD on December 4 and DVD on January 1 from Uncork’d Entertainment. In honor of the drama’s distribution, ShockYa is premiering an exclusive clip from the film.

‘Prodigy’ was written and directed by Nathan Leon. In addition to Kays, the thriller also stars Tyler Roy Roberts (‘Z Nation’) and King Amir Allahyar (‘Fa├žade’).

Uncork’d Entertainment has released the following synopsis for ‘Prodigy,’ which has been nominated for four ICFF Awards, including Best Picture:

Erik Black (Kays) is a broken soul due to the loss of his wife. He spends his days alone and self-medicating. All of that changes when his estranged son asks him to help him reach an undisclosed destination. There, he says, he will receive a divine message he believes will change the course of humanity. To survive they must stick together while fostering a belief in something greater than themselves.
