The Freshman

Clarke Kellogg is a young man who has just left his home town for New York to begin film school. Upon arrival a small time crook cons Clarke and gets away with his belongings including all his cash, Clarke soon runs into Carmine “Jimmy the Toucan” Sabatini, an ‘importer’ bearing a striking resemblance to a certain cinematic godfather. Carmine gives Clarke a job so he can get back up on his feet, though it doesn’t seem very legit. On his first job Clarke suspects he is involved in illegal activities but its too late now, the young film student is caught up in a caper involving endangered species and secret millionaire dinners, the police are following their every move and young Clarke’s life has changed dramatically from what he initially envisioned.
