One afternoon Dan is brutally jumped and accosted by a gang in his neighborhood. The leader of Dans crew demands that he murder his punisher and thus officially earn his 'membership' into the crew: a teardrop tattoo under his right eye.

filmmaker's note
I want TEARDROP to confront viewers head-on with the merciless violence that plages Americas most disenfranchised. The filmic reduction of only six scenes told in seamless sequence shots all from our protagonists point of view should evoke the feeling of being trapped in the dilemma, the same way our protagonist feels: trapped with no escape, forced into a decision that will change his life forever.
