After finding a bag full of money, Lucio’s simple trip to the convenience store becomes a journey into chaos when he notices that he is being followed.

At first glance, Jared Douglas’ film, The Sound of the Wind, has the makings of a psychological thriller of a man caught with a bag of cash at the wrong place at the wrong time. But quickly you realize that there is another side to the story, that makes the film worth watching.

“…Lucio’s world comes crashing around him, except for the fact that the world is not the one crashing—it’s Lucio.”

All Lucio (Christian Gnecco Quintero) had to do with go to the store and get a pack of diapers for his young daughter. The moment he finds the abandoned bag of cash, Lucio’s world comes crashing around him, except for the fact that the world is not the one crashing—it’s Lucio. It was the bag that triggered his Delusional Disorder, a condition he and his girlfriend, Vanessa (Stefanie Rons), believed was under control and warranted a harmless trip to the store.

Once triggered, Lucio is now being followed home by a car that was coincidentally heading in the same direction as him. The man standing outside the gas station happened to be some guy standing outside a gas station. And that “kind” stranger (Dwayne Tarver), who helps a stranded Lucio with his stalled car, turns out to be an actually God-fearing kind stranger.
