'Warren' Synopsis:

On the North Shore of Chicago you don't just grow up happy, you have to be successful, driven and power hungry. This is where Warren Cavanee grew up. At the age of 28, Warren is not successful, not driven, no longer concerned with making something of his life. He is engulfed in monotony, the mundane, losing hope in possibility, and forgetting his uncanny ability to conquer anything he puts his mind to. This is the story of Warren Cavanee facing himself and the beast everyone battles, yet few defeat: the pursuit of passion or the paycheck of consistency. Warren's life is at a crossroad, standing face-to-face with the war inside: There's what you're supposed to do, and what you have to do.
