Synopsis: Ian Sparks (Chase Williamson) discovers the dark side of heroism, while going after the nation’s most notorious super criminal he manages to leave his life and reputation in ruins along the way.
The tragic loss of his parents as a young boy leaves him scarred in unimaginable ways, but it helps shape his desire to become a “super.”
He manages to team up with fellow “super” Lady Heavenly (Ashley Bell), but the arrival of a vicious serial killer, Matanza (William Katt), who unleashes a bloody rampage on the city, destroys Sparks and Heavenly’s partnership and relationship.
Racked with guilt, Sparks hits rock bottom, only to be saved by a guardian angel Archer (Clancy Brown), a cop whose own tragedy was linked to the fate of Sparks’ parents.
Archer and Sparks discover their common enemy, which brings together a partnership of other “gifted” individuals whose intentions are not as honorable as Sparks.
Hitting rock bottom, Sparks looks to make an easy buck, but finds danger along the way. In order to right the wrong done to his life and to his friends, he must face his past and fight for his future.
Now all Ian Sparks can do is regain his dignity, seek redemption, and clear his name.
Preceded by the short film, “The Apocalypse”.
What Critics Are Saying:
“Whatever it is we see on screen today lacks quite a few things – and this film, “Sparks,” has everything filming has been missing, and then some. So do me a favor and spark your psyche; see how it’s done in the real world.”
