SYNOPSIS: 

There's always an excuse, but never a reason that justifies taking the risk.

The documentary, SHIFT FORWARD, is a cautionary tale, that holds out a beacon of hope in the wake of extreme personal loss. This film explores the journeys of two men; one community leader, Ron Barton and one prison inmate, Richard Bryant; irrevocably linked through actions taken, actions denied, and the out of control spiral that is left in the aftermath. These two men on opposite sides of a tragic crash have forged an unlikely alliance as they seek a way to live through the outcome. In their search, they have found their way to healing through education, and the sharing of their personal stories.
