If guns could talk. What kind of tales would they tell? Like people, guns are dealt their cards at inception. Their scripts have been written the minute the scolding hot iron is shaped and machined. This story will act as the witness for a stolen pistol. From a small time gun runner, to a young guy trying to earn his stripes, a gang banger who lives recklessly and understands the value a gun can have in the hood. Six degrees was influenced by End Of Watch, Crash, and Lord Of War. The perspective for six degrees is to be the pistol, to see what the pistol sees, feel what the pistol feels.
Slim: An educated 30 something year old white male with a son and wife. Growing up around less educated hustlers he quickly picked up the game. Knows he is not invincible and plans to stop selling guns once he has enough to provide for his family. Always has his wits about him and rarely shows remorse but deep down he knows that what he is doing is wrong and may ultimately come back to haunt him. Has his reservations and plays a lot close to the chest but confines in Ivan like a brother.
Ivan: A loyal and quiet confidant. Has known Slim for a couple of years now and never questions his actions or motives. Works a 9-5 but not much else is known about him. (He may or may not be a cop)
Mike: A “kid” in his mid 20’s who was born in to wealth but grew up wanting to be a gangster more than anything. His reasons were less about being cool and more about loyalty. He wanted a “family” who had his back no matter what. Never received any attention at home so he went to the streets looking for it. Went to private school but spent most of his time at a nearby public school trying to earn his stripes. No one has ever really taken him seriously and He’s the type that feels as if a gun can and will change that.
Gangster : Like Mike this young man is yearning to be loved but finds it in the wrong places. He is the pistol. He knows that he’ll die at a young age or end up in jail but that no longer bothers him. He’s cold hearted and fears no man. He feels the world has turned its back on him and vise verse. Survival of the fittest.
