First   (29 min)

First love. First kill. First grace. Throughout our lives we experience
love, loss, and in rare instances, rebirth. Meet Angelina Marveau, a
fallen French nun struggling between her Catholic beliefs and her 'first'
love, an American Professor with a bloody past and a nihilistic view of
the world. Meet Illija Kustunica, a young Serbian assassin who gets his
first assignment just hours after his newborn child enters the world.
Meet Professor James Mooney, an American Professor who's been on
the run for years due to his former occupation with the C.I.A. Three
desperate lives crash, explode, and then converge into an irreversible
series of 'firsts'.
