After a worldwide nuclear holocaust, a widow and her daughter open their farmhouse to two survivors as an act of grace and begin to rebuild their lives. Soon, however, an other-worldly order of Sisters arrives and attempts to seize control of their farm. The family comes to learn that the Sisters’ dogma is deadlier than they ever expected, in this horror-thriller that asks what rules we choose to follow when given a chance to rebuild society, and what memories of the old world must become casualties to create a new order.

Press & Reviews:
In this political satire, populist Becky Roberts and maverick Les Sugarman compete for their party's presidential nomination-despite a history that wasn't strictly political. When the media forces them to run together, their dream ticket becomes a nightmare. Audiences will laugh at the antics of politicos and media alike, until they are faced with the results of our entertainment-dominated political process.
