SPARKS is a comic book movie with a refreshingly dark twist. It starts not unlike a mash up of a lot of super hero movies: shortly after a meteor destroys most of Rochester, NY, young Ian Sparks (Chase Williamson) is orphaned by a violent crime, raised by a loving grandmother in a small town, and then moves to the big city to fight crime.
Jamie Gunn (Grey McCulloch) is a director with a budget that is inversely proportional to his ego, and an artistic vision that is as directionless as Helen Keller trying to play Marco Polo. Through sheer force of personality, he manages to convince a handful of people to help him make his cinematic opus: Totalitarian Hell. Armed with all the smug self-assurance…
However, when he meets a high priced call girl named Helen (Marielle de Rocca-Serra) he begins to look for reasons to stay in America awhile longer. And a new friend, Ron (Patrick Zielinski), helps him come up with just that reason: The Extra Topping, a pizza and prostitution combo platter.
The money from the venture seems to what can turn their lives around for the better, but when a dangerous party with a group of ruthless politicos goes south, Alex will have to decide what he’s willing to die for and who he wants to live for.
