STRUCK SYNOPSIS
Flowers is a fading rock star. Years after his last hit record and massive world tours (with his now broken up band Ultra Violence ), STRUCK is the story of this weathered man’s journey to reclaim the stardom, and success he once had. While mindlessly scrolling for satisfaction, Flower’s stumbled upon an article about a postal worker who was struck by lightning. Following this most unfortunate event, this postal worker, became a brilliant classical pianist. Voila lighting strikes! Flowers has found his path to reignight his career. Helping Flowers on his journey are his loyal assistant Chico, Breezy his effervescent much younger girlfriend, and a cast of characters including Chico’s mother Elena, Flowers’ old band mates and Sister Midnight, a queer dive bar performer who’s seen it all and knows the power of unity.

Flowers follows many paths in an attempt to get back to where he had once been and learns from each of the characters he is lucky enough to have supporting and guiding him.
