WHO AM I takes the viewer into a world where the line between reality and fantasy becomes blurred, peaking into the lives of four distinct stories: A Guy & A Girl who share a secret, A Mother & Daughter looking for the truth, A Comic Book Artist and his character come alive, and a human being having a psychedelic conversation with God (Her)self. Join us as we make discoveries little by little about how all of these strangers are connected to one another, and as we're forced to ask: what's real, anyway? 

WHO AM I by Rodney Reyes was featured in's recommended shows for June 2016.
