Sales, Sex & Salvation
Raised in a lower middle-class home in the 1970s Keven Owens doesn’t want his parents’ paycheck-to-paycheck life. He has big dreams.
Keven falls in love with a young woman who loves him too. She is sold on his dreams and agrees to marry him, almost overnight. Funding his own education Owens claws his way up in the business world to get where he can make the most money – corporate sales.
He falls prey to his temptations. Booze, sex and lies surround his daily life. Cheating, drinking and lying becomes common tools for coping with his ‘businessman’s’ life. Both ethical and moral compromises are made to close and retain deals. Affairs with women eat him up with guilt, but he can’t break the cycle. It all seems to be part of the high-roller lifestyle he desires. Expensive cars and fast motorcycles, as much as the martini glass in his hand, support the image.
Then depression sets in as the rise in his career threatens to tear his marriage and family apart. His world comes crashing down around him before he realizes he has to change to find the salvation he needs. He wants forgiveness for his sins, but is it too late? Has too much damage been done? Is suicide the only way out?
