Actor Rafael Petardi (Red Notice) assumes the role of a lifetime as he takes on the character of Charles, a widower whose life takes an unexpected turn in the heartwarming drama Depth Of Field. Produced by Bobby Cloud (Lost Souls, Troll), Orlin Dobreff (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) and directed by John F. Uranday, (Lost Souls, Troll) the film is set to captivate audiences by giving a rare, positive look into the U.S. Foster Care system. 

Considered broken by many, our Foster Care system has been under crisis. The number of licensed foster homes dropped last year in more than half of the states in America. Meanwhile, more children continue to enter the child welfare system each day.  

Depth Of Field follows the story of Charles, a man who has lost his zest for life following the passing of his beloved wife. However, his world undergoes a profound transformation when he crosses paths with a foster child living next door. This chance encounter becomes the catalyst for a touching journey of healing, love, and self-discovery, ultimately altering the course of Charles’ life in unforeseen ways.

The film is the brainchild of producer Bobby Cloud and director John F. Uranday, whose commitment to bringing meaningful stories to the forefront at Penhweel Universe, has ensured that the film is a testament to the human spirit and the profound impact of human connections. Director John F. Uranday, who also penned the script, expertly steers the film with a deft hand, weaving together a narrative that is both poignant and uplifting.

“Rafael Petardi’s portrayal of Charles is resonating with audiences, as he brings a nuanced and deeply empathetic interpretation to the film. His ability to convey the emotional depth and complexity of the character is a testament to his exceptional talent” said director John F. Uranday who also penned the script based on his experiences as a foster father himself. 

Added film producer and co-writer Bobby Cloud: “Rafael gave an award-winning performance. 

The film’s exploration of the transformative power of love and human connection is set to resonate with audiences of all ages, offering a poignant reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and the capacity for hope in the face of adversity.”
