Anthony "Ant", a young Soldier, returns to Los Angeles on military leave eager to catch up with his childhood friends after Army boot camp only to discover that it's not all sunshine in Southern California. He's confronted with a vital choice; will he return to old habits or move forward in uniform with new ethos.
Corban's early adult year's were spent with Active Duty military, where he would return home occasionally on authorized military leave. Memories of those experiences would help Corban craft his first screenplay titled "Leave". Corban & Anele wanted to take the experience further than words and decided to self produce the piece. The short film was created over a few days with help from friends in Los Angeles. Due to the nature of COVID-19, CALM Collective decided to skip a release party and festivals and share the work direct through their website.

Shortly after graduating Air Force Basic Military Training he was home on leave when a situation with old friends almost landed him in jail and costing him his career.
Now, more than 10 years later, Tech. Sgt.
