'The Van In My Mind' presents four short stories featuring desperate people at a crossroads–grappling for meaning, purpose, and second chances.

In "Angel In Vegas," a burned-out, numbed-out, mid-career advertising exec named Gus meets a mysteriously congenial soul at a Las Vegas casino. Can the old man persuade Gus to recover his spark–before it's too late?

Motivational speaker and guru "Frank the Tank" peddles self-help and business advice to sold out arenas. If audiences understood Frankie's dubious past, would they still flock to his books and seminars?

A mainstay supermarket chain goes bankrupt, plunging a former employee into reflection and introspection. Meet the mostly-dysfunctional employees and customers who shaped the protagonist's formative years in "A&P: A Eulogy."

In "Samurai Deadhead," a late-career kickboxer meets a rock 'n' roll legend who draws him a map to a buried treasure. After the musician's death, the martial artist sets out on a transformative quest to recover the goods. But is there any treasure to be found? Or was it all just a cruel joke?

Touching on themes of failure and success, despair and hope, darkness and light, 'The Van In My Mind' will remind you the greatest obstacles are often the ones we create.
