Set in the desert landscape of America, Argo is synonymous with loneliness, desperation, and the unconscious longing for human connection.
The film tells the story of Becca (Jordana Spiro), a dispossessed soul, who is on the road to nowhere. A chance encounter with Cal (Marcus Chait) and these two strangers travel together to a roadside motel for reasons neither of them understands. On a fateful journey, this is a collision course that will change their lives, as they discover... hope can be found in the most unexpected places and in the most unexpected people.
Writer/Director's Jordan Bayne and Michael Knowles collaborate for the first time on a story that explores the struggles of being human, a story of hope and survival in a world bent on crushing the human spirit.
A blue eyed cherokee films and 7A Productions Presentation. Written and Directed by Jordan Bayne and Michael Knowles.

"Reminiscent of a Jarmusch film, we are ushered into a strange reality as strangers meet on the edge of the desert. A strong script is carried even further by superb acting, achieving what most art films only aspire to be."
~ Tacoma Film Festival Guide..
"Argo literally pulls you out of your seat and into a barren waste land of self-inflicted pain and suffering only to have you find a beautifully cinematic world of love and hope. Argo is the film that proves there are powerful and undiscovered Independent Filmmakers in this world."
~ Anthony Gutierrez, Festival Director, Independent Film Festival of North Texas
"We felt like we had been hit by a bus."
~Patrick Schweiss. Festival Director, Sedona Film Festival
"... an impressive piece of work. Disillusionment, desert, and drink. Beautiful images and well framed. Graceful and effective editing. Aren't we all looking to get aboard an Argo?"
~James Fee, Film Aficionado
"Argo is a love story of a very different type... a story of hope and not giving it up, even when everything seems hopeless... it's only a short, but it really does speak volumes!"
~Brian Morton, Rogue Cinema
