Written and directed by THE CANAL’s Ivan Kavanagh, it stars Andi Matichak (HALLOWEEN and the upcoming HALLOWEEN KILLS), AUTOPSY’s Emile Hirsch, Luke David Blumm, Erin Bradley Dangar and Rocco Sisto (SCREAM FOR HELP). The synopsis: “After a mysterious group of individuals breaks into Laura’s [Matichak] home and attempts to steal her eight-year-old son, David [Blumm], the two of them flee town in search of safety. But soon after the failed kidnapping, David becomes extremely ill, suffering from increasingly sporadic psychosis and convulsions. Following her maternal instincts to save him, Laura commits unspeakable acts to keep him alive but soon, she must decide how far she is willing to go to save her son.”
