Breathe | Stefon Bristol Creating Apocalyptic World With No Air

Quvenzhané Wallis and Jennifer Hudson in Breathe

Every breath counts, especially in an intense thriller with Breathe.

In a future dystopia, the film is a cautionary tale about survival as it pits one against another for machines and devices that create breathable air.

‘Breathe’ boasts a stellar cast, featuring Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls), Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil franchise), Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Raúl Castillo (Army of the Dead), Common (Selma), and Sam Worthington (Avatar franchise).

Stefon Bristol (See You Yesterday) directed the movie, which was based on Doug Simon’s (Demonic) screenplay.

Here is the official synopsis:

Breathe is a heart-pounding thriller in the future. After Earth is left uninhabitable due to lack of oxygen, a mother Maya (Hudson) and her daughter Zora (Wallis) are forced to live underground, with short trips to the surface only made possible by a coveted state-of-the-art oxygen suit made by Maya’s husband, Darius, whom she presumes to be dead. When a mysterious couple arrives claiming to know Darius and his fate, Maya tentatively agrees to let them into their bunker but these visitors are not who they claim to be ensuing in mother and daughter fighting for survival.
