‘Cost of a Soul’ Film Will Be Shown in the KCP&L “Living Room” Tonight
Kansas City Filmfest is underway at AMC Mainstreet and various other theater locations, but one movie will be shown in a truly unique venue. Cost of a Soul will debut in Kansas City’s Power and Light Live Block, in “Kansas City’s Living Room”. The outdoor space is in the heart of the Power and Light district, and this will be the very first movie ever shown in the space.
The event is serving as a fundraiser for Variety (The Children’s Charity of Kansas City) and the Kansas City Filmmakers Jubilee. A mere $5 gains you entrance to the event, free popcorn, and access to a Q & A with director Sean Kirkpatrick. The event begins at 7:00pm, and you may pay the $5 at the door.
Cost of a Soul won the AMC/Rogue “Big Break movie contest” out of 250 film entries.
Synopsis: Wounded in the war, Tommy Donahue and DD Davis return home from Iraq to the slum neighborhood they grew up in. Tommy returns to his wife, Faith, whom he abandoned while she was pregnant to escape a life of crime. Tommy meets his disabled six-year-old daughter, Hope, for the first time, and she begins to melt his frozen heart.
While DD struggles to make an honest living, his older brother, Darnell, has risen to become the neighborhood kingpin. DD faces the pressure to save his younger brother, James, from following in Darnell’s dangerous footsteps.
Tommy and DD find themselves trapped in the same slum they joined the military to escape. As they struggle for redemption, their own families become entangled in a web of crime, corruption and violence.
