FILM DESCRIPTION


The Disciple explores the ramifications of the current Iraq war through the lives of four trans-cultural friends: Pete, an American mid-westerner; Jud, a Black European; and Lisa, a first generation Polish-New Yorker, who share a house in Los Angeles.

Together with their South African friend Mary, the group is coaxed into temporarily escaping the complex lies they live and the façade of happiness when Michael, Jud’s estranged ex-military cousin, comes to visit from London.

As they abandon their protective façade, however, tenuous boundaries begin to fray, secrets are revealed and the friends are forced to evaluate volatile personal truths and confront their suspicions about the deadly nature of Michael’s visit.
