Director Taron Lexton's 'Struck' is a modern parable on cupid and his bow.
On his way to work one day, Joel (played by Bodhi Elfman) is impaled through the chest by a three-foot arrow. But the new appendage Joel has acquired isn't from someone intent on harming him, it was from cupid. The result of falling in love has left him alive, but lonely, as the recipient of his affections is a stranger in a big city.
So Joel has to learn to deal both with his newfound protrusion, and his own painful loneliness. He tries to go to work, to date women, but no one seems ready to accept his strange flaw. But, as he resigns himself to a lifetime of having an arrow sticking out his chest, a chance encounter leads to an all together brighter future.
'Struck' is a touching film that re-imagines an historical and romantic depiction of love, puts it in a modern setting, and lets the audience watch the strange predicament unfold.
