Based on a true story, “Porcupine” centers around a newly widowed mother named Nora. She discovers an intruder outside her trailer home where she lives with her baby daughter and immediately grabs her deceased husband’s 12-gauge shotgun and calls 911. When the man enters her home, Nora chooses to protect her baby, even if that means taking someone’s life.

“Porcupine” features Samantha Bilinkas in the role of Nora. Her past credits include “Civil War” (2006), “Spy” (2011) and “Temma” (2012).
