After the threat of a biological attack during the Cold War leaves the residents of a NYC tenement building trapped inside,

a troubled teenager must fight against the self-appointed leader in order to save the tenants.


One of the most exciting aspects of this film is that those involved are primarily female. Despite women making up a majority of the movie-going audience since 2010, females are far under-represented both in front of and behind the camera with women making up only 13% of directors, 5% of cinematographers, and 34% of speaking characters in the top 250 grossing films in 2019*.

The crew of our film is  77% female with 62.5% of our speaking roles specified for female characters, including our main protagonist.
