Mission is a 2001 coming-of-age film about a young novelist, Marvin (Chris Coburn), who moves from New York to San Francisco to write a book. The story takes place in the San Franciscan Mission District, where Marvin winds up living in an apartment with a crazy musician named Jay (Joshua Leonard). Living in Mission is wild and full of adventure which maybe a little too much for Marvin to handle at first. But even as he adapts and learns to thrive off of the spirit of Mission, dot com entrepreneurs are conquering the district with financial fervor in trade for stripping it of its livelihood and young energy. Marvin and Jay must rely upon their friendship to get them through watching their dreams and environment sent into such a vulnerable state. If they can stay afloat in the new Mission district, what will it cost? This independent film by Loren Marsh was nominated for five independent film festival awards.
