Affected: The Story of US

Affected tells the story of a small business owner that lost over 90% of his revenue in a matter of months after Covid-19 hit America. Frustrated and broke, he decided to embark on a journey to document the lives of all the others that have been impacted by Covid.

Throughout his journey, we explore the immeasurable gaps in society, race, education and medicine that have been exponentially magnified. On top of that, a new divide is on the rise between those that think Covid is a mere hoax that’s killing business, jobs and our economy, and those that think this is one of the biggest pandemics that human beings have ever witnessed
Will these differences cause us to grow further apart or will we finally come closer together in the face of a new adversary?





“Love” portraits a mid life crisis of Geri, a 40 year old man recently separated from his wife who goes back to his country in search of a change and in search of himself … or that is what he thinks… we will never know because he doesn’t know himself. We follow Geri in his quest, and we witness how his insecurity and lack of courage in taking the necessary steps toward changing his life, bring him back to the starting point.
