Cut to Black

Bill Ivers, a disgraced ex-cop, is hired by a wealthy former friend to rid his estranged daughter Jessica of a stalker. Soon, Bill finds himself interceding in Jessica’s increasingly complicated life, caught between the crushing debt of a dangerous loan shark, and the specter of her father’s shadowy past.

CUT TO BLACK is a story of desperate people living in the wake of bad choices, trying to make the most of what’s left of their time in this world.

Shot in lavish black and white tones, CUT TO BLACK is a gorgeous cinematic tribute to classic noir, set against stark, gritty urban modernity. Nobody gets away clean in this tough story of love, loyalty, and the inevitable conclusion we’re all headed for.
