The Santoro Brothers started working behind the scenes when they were just kids. They would make lots of "backyard" movies with a Super8 camera, and enlist the help of family and friends to play a variety of characters. The "films" varied too ... from a really bad remake of Starsky and Hutch … to The Kitchen Encounter, a horror film ... to The Adventures of Super Goober, a comedy of sorts.
In addition to growing up as child actors, The Santoro Brothers continued to pursue their love for filmmaking working behind the scenes on many projects. The Santoro Brothers are thrilled to work together, once again, on this exciting Italian-American story.

The film was shot entirely in the state of Delaware, their hometown. It received many accolades and was selected to premiere at the prestigious Hollywood REEL Independent Film Festival in Los Angeles, California.
