Embarking on a spontaneous journey, in both the literal and figurative senses, can often times provide the most freeing and liberating path for people who are contending with what they should do with their lives. That’s certainly the case for the characters in the new transient road film, ‘States,’ which features an array of young drifters who are wandering throughout the U.S. with varying degrees of purpose.

The adventure comedy-drama is set to be distributed by Indiecan in theaters in New York City this Friday, August 2, with an expansion to Los Angeles in the following weeks. In honor of the release, ShockYa is premiering an exclusive clip from the movie, which is titled ‘Prada.’

‘States’ was written, directed and produced by, and stars, Zach Gayne. In addition to the filmmaker, the comedy-drama also stars Alex Essoe, who plays Wendy Torrence in the upcoming ‘Shining’ prequel, ‘Doctor Sleep.’ Jeremy O.Harris and DC Paul also co-star in ‘States.’

The story that’s featured in ‘States’ is a multifaceted meditation on freedom, in the vein of Mark Twain, Jack Kerouac and Richard Linklater. The movie is also an outsider’s love letter to America, and the searchers of its endless highways.
