"Straight Outta Tompkins", a Film About How Drugs Deals and Crime Affect a Neglected Lower East Side Teenager

Straight Outta Tomkins is a full length feature film written, produced, directed by and starring filmmaker Zephyr Benson. The film is set and filmed in the once drug-filled Tomkins Square Park, throughout Alphabet City and the Lower East Side.

A forlorn, gifted teenager abandoned by his family in New York City mistakenly substitutes the attention of a Lower East Side drug dealer for the love of his absentee father.

Straight Outta Tomkins premiers in Los Angeles and New York City on March 6th, 2015
