About This Film

Synopsis

An autistic boxer and a nomadic stripper form a tenuous friendship that helps them both to better understand the world that appears to have left them both behind. Noah Connelly (Michael Worth) is an aspiring boxer from Oakland, California. Most of Noah's days are spent cleaning the floors at his local gym, patiently waiting for the perfect moment when he'll finally step into the ring and his future will come into focus. To the casual observer Noah leads an entirely unremarkable existence, though exotic dancer Alexia (Margot Farley) is far from the casual observer. One day, after crossing paths seemingly by chance, Noah and Alexia begin to affect the way Alexia views the opposite sex. To this point in her life, Alexia has taken a somewhat transient approach to relationships. Now, as her friendship with Noah begins to show signs of becoming something more serious, Alexis discovers that her approach to love may hint at a deeper pain that she isn't sure she possesses the power to confront. Encouraged by the owner of the gym (John Saxon) to introduce Alexia to his family, Noah invites her on a journey that will take her out of her comfort zone while challenging her entire perception of love. Perhaps if Alexia can find the courage to confront her deepest fears, Noah can summon the self-confidence to strap on the gloves and prove himself as a true pugilist.

Awards

2008 VisionFest Domani Vision Award for Emerging Talent Michael Worth.
New York City, VISIONFEST 08: The Other Festival, ended its five-day run last night, at the Tribeca Grand Hotel Screening Room, with its "closing night" Official Selection, God's Ears, directed by Michael Worth, and its 2008 Awards Ceremony, which saw the aforementioned film walk off with two of the film festival's most coveted awards: the Domani Vision Award for Emerging Talent, and the Jack Nance "Breakthrough Performance" Award. Both awards were presented to Michael Worth; the first honoring him as a filmmaker, and the second, recognizing his powerful acting turn. Worth first took to the podium with his mother, who stated that while she's not a writer, an actor, or a director, she affectionately added: "But I'm a real good producer," obviously referring to her son as he raised his award in the air. Michael Worth then added: "This is the first time I've ever won anything like this. I'm just really honored."
