Once There Was A Winter

2016 / HD Colour / Feature

Currently in post-production

A winter wonderland, a young Lady secluded in a doublewide trailer with flowing liquor, a Hunter, a Welder, a Plumber, guns, bullets, a missing wife, and ambiguous sexual tension… What could go wrong?

Winter is a feature length, twisted psychological thriller where escape into frozen nature is as dangerous as the hot trap of shelter. Set in a deceptively beautiful snowy landscape, a young adventurous student finds herself in over her head in a secluded doublewide trailer. It’s trial by fire as she negotiates her safety with three men when mating rituals and power struggles fueled by guns, liquor, and a secret threaten them all.
