The film follows Nick, a smooth-talking, ambitious young man from the streets of Boston who has made some mistakes, and has found himself living a life of petty crime. Never gaining acceptance from his traditional, Italian-American family, Nick begins idolizing another, tighter-knit family – the Boston mafia.

Currently in post production, Synchronicity will show the first footage from GOD ONLY KNOWS at the EFM in Berlin. “GOD ONLY KNOWS brings together a powerhouse of creative talent both established and successful as well as fresh faces. The combination is very exciting and we are thrilled to have this new film to offer our buyers at EFM,” said Kegeyan and Nestel.
