synopsis
AARDVARK is perhaps the first narrative film to star a man blind since birth. In a role inspired by his own life, Larry Lewis plays a solitary man recovering from alcoholism and working towards stability. When he joins a jiu-jitsu academy he finds a close friend in his young, hard-partying instructor, Darren. But, as disturbing aspects of Darren's life are revealed, Larry soon finds himself alone and faced with the consequences of a horrific act of violence.
