Mark Elias in Golden Boy
Co-writer-actor Mark Elias stars in director-executive producer Stoney Westmoreland’s drama, ‘Golden Boy.’

Being transparent is better than being invisible in the competitive entertainment world that drives Los Angeles. Everyone is so determined to make a name for themselves, and not be pushed from the spotlight, that they’ll do whatever it takes to stop their adversaries. That fight for survival can be seen in actor Mark Elias’ protagonist, James, in the new drama, ‘Golden Boy,’ which is set to be distributed on VOD on September 17, courtesy of DFM Creative. In honor of the upcoming release, ShockYa is exclusively premiering the movie’s official trailer.

‘Golden Boy’ was directed and executive produced by Stoney Westmoreland. Besides starring in the movie, Elias also co-wrote the script with Jonathan Browning. In addition to Elias, the film also stars Lex Medlin, Paul Culos, Kimberly Westbrook, Logan Donovan, Jeffrey Marsh and Armin Shimerman.

DFM Creative has released the following synopsis for ‘Golden Boy’:

James is a young man who gambles on the dangers of being seen versus the quiet life of desperation and invisibility. He’s saved from doomed nonexistence by CQ (Medlin), a wealthy debonair businessman who has more going on than meets the eye, and introduces James to a world he is not ready to navigate. As a result, James is able to chases his dreams, but in the process, loses himself, one piece at a time. He also contends with such universal themes as trust, seduction, betrayal and redemption.
