The lives of five young people collide when an apparent miracle occurs, in this story of love, loss and the search for intelligent life in Los Angeles.
Bruce thought he had everything. A stable life, a beautiful girlfriend. But he still felt dead inside. And he found himself at a crossroads, with no idea what to do with the rest of his life.
Lily had always been told she was crazy. Most people saw her as naive and childish. But she'd managed to get into a major college, far away from her old life. And she'd met a nice guy, Bruce, who she knew liked her ... though his girlfriend would never approve of that.

Why couldn't he just give her a straight answer? And what the hell was he doing with that Lily girl anyway?
And then one day something unexplainable happened. Suddenly Bruce and Lily realized how small their problems were in comparison to the vastness of ... whatever is out there. And they started to wonder if there was a higher purpose in store for them, a fate that neither of them could avoid ...
Written and directed by Garrett Gilchrist and starring Cori Haisler, David Ashe, David Maddox, Katherine Carpenter and Mariana McConnell, "Gods of Los Angeles" is the seventh feature-length motion picture from Orange Cow Productions. Three years in the making, this meticulously-crafted drama was shot for nearly nothing by USC film school graduate Garrett Gilchrist, as a labor of love.
"An interesting film with lots of great characters that you'll find yourself pulling for and hoping that things work out for them so they can all find happiness. It's definitely a movie worth seeing." - Rogue Cinema
"Gilchrist's approach is inspiring." - Film Threat
