Unseen Abilities is a film in post-production hoping to do well in film festivals. The movie was written, directed and produced by first-time filmmaker Dustin Woodard and won the audience-award for the first festival it appeared in.
Will moves in with his handicapped cousin, James, for the summer. His discomfort around his cousin disappears as they become friends, but reappears with intensity upon discovering his cousin has mysterious abilities that have gone unnoticed by others.
Will isn’t looking forward to spending the summer living with his disabled cousin, James, who became physically handicapped after a devastating car accident. Will’s discomfort around his cousin doesn’t last long as the two quickly become friends, as James is still a funny, intelligent guy who likes to have fun. After stumbling upon mysterious abilities that Will’s cousin has kept hidden from others, Will decides to investigate the James that no one else sees. Unfortunately for Will, he will soon learn that some secrets are better left undiscovered as his focus will shift from following James to surviving James.
