“If There’s A Hell Below”

Tweetable Logline:
An ambitious journalist meets an intelligence service whistle-blower. An hour later one of them is dead.

Elevator Pitch:
Abe is an ambitious young journalist with a lead on a story that could
make his career. Debra is an intelligence analyst with a serious
revelation to leak. She insists on meeting Abe in a desolate place in
the American West.

In minutes they will meet. An hour later, one of them will be dead.

This simple premise unfolds multiple layers of depth as the tension is
raised to almost unbearable levels. IF THERE’S A HELL BELOW is sure to
provoke intense discussion among its viewers, demanding repeat viewing.

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.
