In Search Of is a 2008 drama film written and directed by Zeke Zelker and produced by the company Independent Dream Machine.


In Search Of is an unconventional drama where a wrong decision will force good people into bad circumstances while desire changes everything. The film follows ten characters that use sex as a way to get something out of life. Dave (played by Jack Barley) starts a business only so that he can afford the lifestyle that his girlfriend is accustomed to. Lauren is cheating on her husband with her soul mate, while Lauren's son Jack uses his wealth to manipulate those who love him. Andy (played by Keith Nobbs), is a high school football player who falls prey to peer pressure from teammates which forces him to deal with his own sexual desires.
