Show Info

By Aaron Loeb
Directed by Josh Costello

With Ben Euphrat, Jason Kapoor, Carrie Paff, Mark Anderson Phillips, Michael Ray Wisely

When a simple case of mass disposal requires a little creative thinking...

Aaron Loeb brings a dark comic edge to this psychological suspense thriller, in which a group of corporate consultants work together on a mysterious and ethically ambiguous project. As the lines between right and wrong are blurred, these characters must navigate the cognitive dissonances and moral dilemmas to decide for themselves if everything is as it really seems.
