Saint Badass The Movie:
Movie Rights Available

The movie industry thrives on a balanced spectrum of true and fictional stories. We feel it’s important to offer the movie rights to this, because this story is part of a movement to improve our failing prison system. It’s time to acknowledge that inhumane punishment for people who have already faced an enormous amount of abuse is beneath us. Justice can done better. This story proves that broken people forced into a life of crime need a safe place to heal, and even when they aren’t safe, they are capable of making peace within themselves. We hope that this future movie will aid the movement to improve our prison system at large.

“In order to change, you must change your thinking. This starts from forgetting about vengeance, about the world owing you, about how you were raised or treated growing up, or the community in which you were raised. Forget about how you were molested, raped, beaten, told you’d never amount to nothing. Because all of that is just a psychological barrier that can be overcome. “John Bruno, Saint Badass
