As most cinematic portrayals of three way romances go SAVAGES starts with love and is quickly followed by drama and chaos. Ben graduated from Berkley and majored in Business and Botany allowing him to create a self-made marijuana industry with his tough guy, former Navy SEAL friend Chon and their sultry girlfriend O (Ophelia). When the Mexican Baja Cartel tries to buy them out and they refuse a savage war of wills befalls them all.
This July, SAVAGES comes to theaters.
