American Refugee with Erika Alexander and Derek Luke
If the American government collapses, then everyone is on their own with the survival mentality. In Epix’s American Refugee, the nation was on the brink of chaos and collapse and everyone resorted to helping themselves. With the stars Erika Alexander and Derek Luke, the story hit really close to reality and to home.
The film also stars Sam Trammell, Zamani Wilder, Jessi Case, Vince Mattis, Charity Jordan, and Peyton Jackson. Ali LeRoi directed the movie from the script written by Allison Buckmelter and Nicolas Buckmelter.
Here is the official synopsis:
A family seeks shelter in a neighbor’s bunker, while the American economy is in collapse and the nation is under martial law. There, they find the danger inside is potentially greater than the danger outside.
