ABEY BABY is a short film with an Electronic-R&B score, based on the biblical tale of Abraham and Sarah being commanded by God to sacrifice their son Isaac. It is a two-person song-cycle, consisting of 12 shorts that connect to create a 40-minute musical film.
Abe directly addresses God, asking his boss to do him a solid and help Abe and his wife Sarah have a son. God grants his wish and Abe is ecstatic, but when Abe is told how he must return God’s favor, Abe desperately seeks a way to hold onto his newborn son, his wife, and his conscience.
• “I Got A Son!” – Minutes after Isaac's birth, Abe holds his newborn son and gives thanks to God for this joyous gift, promising to return the favor in whatever God chooses.
• “What Would You Do (Reprise)” – Eight days after Isaac's birth, Abraham approaches the crib where Sarah has been keeping Isaac safely hidden from him. Abe quietly begs his sleeping son for answers to his dilemma.
Short film scheduled for production, Fall 2019.
