Forged is a 2010 drama directed by William Wedig starring Manny Perez, David Castro, Margo Martindale, Kevin Breznahan, and Jaime Tirelli.[1][2] Forged was released in theaters through Maya Entertainment on July 29, 2011, as part of the Maya Indie Series.[3]


Set in the cold and industrial town of Scranton, Pennsylvania, Forged follows Chuco (Manny Perez) on his quest to redeem himself after committing a horrific sin against his son, Machito (David Castro). After Chuco’s release from prison, the boy, now 13 years old, abused and homeless, seeks him out and simply mutters: “You killed my mother. Now I kill you.” As Chuco’s guilt and Machito’s need for a father take hold, they must both find a way to move past impossible circumstances to forge a bond that has been forever broken.[4]
