On a remote homestead amongst the Martian frontier, a refugee family from Earth clings to hope for a better life. But when strangers appear in the surrounding hills and attempt to run them off, nine-year-old Remmy (Brooklynn Prince, “The Florida Project”) is faced with the desperate reality her mother (Sofia Boutella, “The Mummy”) and father (Jonny Lee Miller, “Trainspotting”) have tried so hard to keep from her.
Wyatt Rockefeller found the passion to direct in his teen years. He started shooting from an Hi8 camcorder. His life went another route after graduating from Princeton. Rockefeller got involved in the presidential campaign and administration for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Groomed, The White Roses, and Entropy are a couple of short films he has worked on.
