Hit the Road with Shy and Valentine. In BY HOOK OR BY CROOK, Shy (Silas Howard) is a handsome small-town loner who dumps his diner job and thumbs to San Francisco in pursuit of a life of petty crime. Along the way, he stumbles into the off-kilter Valentine (Harry Dodge), who is on a quest to locate his birthmother. An unexpected and magical friendship sparks, as they steal and grift their way towards understanding themselves and the crazy world around them. Strongly character-driven, BY HOOK OR BY CROOK puts a unique spin on the traditional Hollywood buddy movie with a sly sense of humor and keen observations about human nature.
