Everything and everyone in this world is broken–even time. What starts as a rather whimsical and Mad Hatter-esque story about a watchmaker who has no concept of time, slowly grows darker and more disturbing with each scene, descending through the looking glass to a place where characters transform and harden.

Oliver and John are two lonely survivors in a decayed frontier, drawn inexorably together by a web of shattering family secrets. When the watchmaker fashions a bizarre weapon for John, it opens a surrealistic Pandora’s Box, engulfing everyone in a fever dream with no clear exit.

Robert Scott Crane and Christopher Sweeney star in this hallucinogenic fable by EMMY winning Director Eric S. Anderson, Academy Award winning DP David Stump A.S.C., and writer Zoe Taylor.

Old friends long gone their separate ways over a woman are brought crashing back together one fateful night by a dark secret that could destroy them both.

Fastidious Cam and carefree Todd were friends from childhood. Always between them was Diane, the love of both their lives. It always looked like it’d be Diane and Todd together, until Diane began to grow up, and her pragmatism won out: she picked responsibly instead of passionately, and she and Cam got married, leaving Todd adrift. Ever the friend, Todd helped Cam cover up an indiscretion that would haunt them both and finally split them apart. That was five years ago.

Tonight, Todd has shown up out of the past, dragging husband and father-to-be Cam out of his house in the dead of night with a phone call for help. Todd has a body in his trunk and is calling in their debt of friendship. Now Cam must choose: does he risk Todd outing their dark secret, or does he add another to his conscience by helping Todd in his own gruesome cover-up? Nothing is what it seems in this dark character thriller.
