CHICAGO – The controversial phrase “Good Guy with a Gun” is now a title for the latest feature film from John Mossman, who wrote and directed the story of a mother and son trying to rebuild their lives after losing their husband/father to gun violence. The twist is they’re rebuilding in a small town with an entrenched gun culture. The film is available for digital download beginning February 20th, 2024. Click GOOD GUY for providers and details.

Tessa (Tiffany Bedwell) and her teenage son Will (Beck Nolan) have escaped from their native Chicago after the street killing of family patriarch Tom (Joe Swanberg). Tessa’s father has also passed, and the pair are preparing his home for sale in a small rural town, while at the same time trying to decompress from their tragedy. When Will connects with a neighbor his age named Jonah (Jack Cain), he is put in the middle of the local pastime … stocking and shooting guns.
