Jacob King arrives in Los Angeles looking for his missing younger sister. A stranger in a strange land, he has $400 in his pocket and a return ticket home in seven days. Within twenty-four hours Jacob King knows his sister is dead. This is the story of what happens in the next six days.
We are inspired by the great thrillers of the late 1960s and 1970s; films like ‘Point Blank’, ‘The French Connection’ and the work of Paul Schrader. These films are entertaining, taught and uncompromising, and explore the darkness at the heart of their protagonists. ‘Message From The King’ is a conflicted love letter to their adopted city, written by two outsiders in a strange land.
