First Look Studios Announces DVD Release of STRAYS, Written, Directed, Produced and Starring Vin Diesel

Street Date: January 15, 2008

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2007) - First Look Studios, in association with One Race Films, announces the DVD release of STRAYS, Vin Diesel's directional debut that takes a hard look at his own adolescence in New York City. Accepted into competition at 1997's Sundance Film Festival, STRAYS marks Vin Diesel's first feature directorial and screen writing efforts.

Frustrated by the repetitious grind of one-night stands and aimless hustling, drug dealer Rick (Vin Diesel) is looking for meaning and intimacy in his life. Like his testosterone-tweaked buddies, Rick is a "stray" -- lacking a traditional family structure and wrestling subconsciously with his father's absence.

Until Heather enters his life... Suddenly Rick sees the possibility of a committed relationship and the life he has longed for. However, trying to assimilate into Heather's world is not easy. Rick takes heat from his perpetually adolescent and unmotivated cohorts. Though the chemistry between the couple is immediately charged, Rick's street manner and volatile aggression flare, threatening to extinguish their relationship before it begins.
