Once a successful businessman, John Synan's downward spiral through drugs, poverty and heartache are documented in this short documentary. Jogger John as he's affectionately known, has become a local character known for running and a kind heart. We watch his journey from destitution to serenity as he finds his home in Woodstock, NY.
Born and raised in Olivebridge and Woodstock, NY, Kaleigh has always been a storyteller. The environment and characters in Woodstock lent plenty of material for inspiration. She recently graduated from SUNY New Paltz with two degrees, a BS in English and a BA in video production. Her degrees and experience help her craft detail oriented, character driven, rich and wonderful stories.
