Emmy Award Winning director Joel Kazuo Knoernschild & writer Chris Schieffelin's moving short film WARHORSE.
A disenfranchised man one step away from homelessness rails against his own misfortunes and hatches a plan to rebuild his life and achieve the elusive, "American Dream." Mirroring reality, his skewed intentions pull him into a deal with the “devil,” which he can never go back. But at what costs?
