There is a 9 mm Beretta pointed at Kylie’s head. With a purse full of pickpocketed goods, she’s just come home to find two mobsters with a hatchet poised over the head boyfriend. If she’s to save him, she’ll have to make some tough choices. That is, if he’s worth saving.
Clutch is eight-part webseries where Kylie, a streetwise pickpocket who survives on looks, charm and sneaky fingers, is on a quest for her place in the world. But her life changes drastically when she find herself in the big leagues of organized crime. Clutch is created by filmmaker Jonathan Robbins, who invested everything he had into a medium where financial reward is rare, if existent at all.
Robbins’ admiration of the strong female was inspired by his mother, a single parent who battled life with an unstoppable force to raise both Robbins and his mentally-disabled sister and still graduate at age 60 with her second Masters degree. An actor and writer with numerous credits, Robbins heard the frustrations of his actress friends becrying the lack of strong female roles. After setting up his production company mojopro Films twelve years ago, Robbins made it his mandate to create opportunities for women that were as plentiful and exciting as the ones traditionally defined by men. Along came Clutch, an action series driven by female leads, inspired by the likes of Robert Rodriguez and J.J. Abrams.
Each episode of Clutch takes you into Kylie’s gritty world as she searches for something beyond mere survival. She and her boyfriend Matt had just started to get their life together - a nice apartment, a promise of forever. Never mind that it was cobbled together from the spoils of pickpocketing and drug-running. But this world is ripped apart when the mob comes for Matt’s $50,000. Now Kylie is running, searching, fighting and seeking a place where she is finally safe and loved. But this is the bigtime. And it always catches up to you. Clutch is
sex, drugs and survival of the shrewdest.
