Tweetable Logline:

On December 31st, the Earth will be destroyed. Everything you know will become nothing. Maybe it already has.


Elevator Pitch:

On December 31st,
the Earth will be destroyed. Everything you know will become nothing.
Maybe it already has. Alice, having failed in NYC, grabs her mixtapes,
returns to her desolate hometown, and finds a job calling people to
inform them their children have died. It seems unusual that the office
is in an underground bunker under a sheep farm, but her life has drained
her of all emotion. She has the sense that she’s being watched and the
tape with the “play me” label isn’t quite right, but what if she is
essential to the preservation of life on Earth?

Production Team:

co-Directors & co-Producers: Sophia Cacciola & Michael J. Epstein
starring: Allix Mortis

About the Production:

“Because the early part of the story focuses on failure and
isolation, we’ve chosen to match the creative process to the film
experience. Only one actor will be in the film. We are very interested
in using the film to explore the effects of music on mood. So much of
our early lives was shaped by listening to (and making) mixtapes, which
play a major role in our character’s life, guiding her experience and
ultimately, playing a pivotal role in the film’s plot. We’ll be creating
all of the music, which will span across a range of styles and genres.” — Sophia Cacciola

Current Status:

Pre-production.
