The owner/CEO of a green-is-good company faces an uncertain future and reflects on the choices of his past when he's diagnosed with cancer in the poignant drama A Green Story, featuring Billy Zane, Malcolm McDowell, Annabella Sciorra and Shannon Elizabeth, and we've got an exclusive clip from the film hitting theaters May 24.
A Green Story follows Van Vlahakis (Full Metal Jacket star Ed O'Ross), a man who left Greece five decades ago with 22 dollars in his pocket and turned it into the American Dream, forging an environmentally friendly cleaning products giant called Earth Friendly Products. When he's diagnosed with cancer and given only few months to live, he reflects on his early life as an immigrant (played by George Finn) during the 1950s and ultimately decides to push himself to the limit by closing one final business deal -- even if it means taking on the dirty tricks of a large corporation that is trying to take over his company.
Written and Directed by Nika Agiashvili, A Green Story also stars Roger Bart and Alexis Georgoulis.
