In 1979, violence ensues at a small desert saloon when a woman and her daughter seek retribution against a charismatic serial killer who had framed her father 23 years prior.

An active duty Marine, Director Scot Kleinman typically writes and directs short comedy films invoking the daily trials and tribulations of marriage and parenthood; however, this time he decided to go all out in pursuit of creating his first short film. The result? A Western-themed film which, visually, can be described as a mix of True Grit and No Country For Old Men. The film was created with the help of family, friends, and active and retired U.S. Marines for the mere sum of 00. Fox Chase Hare was shot in the Spring of 2018 on location at the infamous Iron Door Bar in Ocotillo Wells, CA, and in and around select locations in San Diego, CA. Admittedly, Fox Chase Hare was an extremely ambitious project (probably too ambitious!), but the family, friends, and colleagues who dedicated their time and effort (for free) to make the film a reality served as the bedrock and backbone that got this film off the ground. As Ray Bradbury once said, “You’ve got to jump off the cliff and you build your wings on the way down.”
