About the Production: Above all else, we want to tell a gripping story--full of hidden layers and surprises. But it's no accident this is a topical movie. It's a film about whistleblowers and journalists--and perhaps of those who might want to impede them--of the line between security and personal freedoms, of the truth and who owns it.
IF THERE'S A HELL BELOW distills this vexing issue into a piece of thought-provoking entertainment: a thrilling drama that asks provocative questions but offers no easy answers. It is a waking nightmare: a story about not what has happened or will happen but what can happen.
