by Dana Chaffin


Treasure Blind DVDCloud Ten Pictures presents, Treasure Blind, an award winning family film available on DVD. This film was written and directed by Brian Shoop who also stars as Cliff. The story is about Cliff, a cab driver and amateur treasure hunter from Tulsa, Oklahoma who finds the meaning of "real" treasure. This is an exciting adventure to find treasure and repair past relationships.


Cliff Edwards (Brian Shoop) is struggling with past due bills and the threat of being evicted from his home. When he finds a treasure map hidden in an old chest in a resale shop, he is desperate to find the treasure. The film gives viewers a glimpse back to 1863, during Civil War times to show how this map finds its way to the resale shop. Unexpectedly a woman shows up at Cliff’s door explaining that his son, Jack (Dr. Joseph Shoop), is missing after hurricane Katrina. Cliff is confused because he has never seen his son and did not even know his name. The woman also tells him that she must leave his grandson, Henry (Daniel Brookshire), who is blind. Jack shows up in Tulsa, followed by casino loan shark goons that he owes $17,000. The three set off to decode the treasure map, find the treasure to pay off Jack’s debt, and protect Henry.
