Sweetheart Deal

Institute History


Sweetheart Deal follows four heroin-addicted women living on Seattle’s Aurora Avenue, an infamous stretch of highway lined with cheap motels and lost souls. Desperate to escape the street, they accept the help of Gray Cloud – a seemingly kind, ponytailed man in his 60s. Inside his battered RV he nurses broken birds back to health. And, he explains, he can fix broken women too. As the story unfolds, we learn that his generosity does not come without a cost.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
