Preying For Mercy:
Frank Gates is an LAPD cop with a rocky past and a dark secret. He restarted his life thinking he was finally safe, but the past is never far behind. Now with danger coming fast he is forced to protect his family at any cost.
“Preying for Mercy,” Los Angeles Police Detective Frank Gates is a hard working cop, a loving father and husband and an all around good man. But beneath his gleaming veneer of happiness and stability lays a buried past wrought with secrets and violence.
After letting a bust go bad in New York, he fled for his life and changed his identity. Nearly 15 years later, his past has caught up with him, and the truths he worked so hard to hide are surfacing.
As he contends with an efficient and ruthless hit man sent after his family, Gates enlists the aid of his partners to put a stop to the on-coming assault. As the hit man zeros in and Gates is running out of time, he makes the only move he has left–to go on the run again, this time to secure the one secret he has left that could turn the tables around and turn him from the hunted to the hunter.
Amazon is available on any Smart TV, ROKU, iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Amazon Fire Tablets, Apple TV, Samsung TV, Samsung
The film was structured to an hour format and positioned to be developed into a series, Wenzel said. “That’s why the ending is open-ended.”
It is being shown on new media rather than in theaters because of the high cost of “going market to market, theater to theater,” he said. “That’s not economical on this kind of independent-style film…. We bring it directly to market.”
