A short film starring Matt Dallas as Lyle. The film was directed by the then ambitious film student from Chapman University called Christy Peters. This was filmed way before the Kyle XY fame.
The film is about East Coast Italian Restauranteur (Frank) who struggles to keep his business afloat. One morning when he opens the shop he finds a battered and bloody youth lying (Lyle) on the pavement face down. He takes the youth in and trains him to work in his restaurant. Though Lyle struggles to do the basic tasks, Frank finds out that he is good at making pies. Lyle's pies become a hit and help to revitalize the dying business. Just as business is booming, Lyle disappears but leaves a note with the scripture Matthew 25:35-36 "though I was hungry, you took me in...blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy"
