Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan star as a pair of paramedics traversing the nocturnal streets of New Orleans. More than just colleagues, the duo enjoy a long-standing friendship, supporting each other through the difficulties they face in their increasingly complicated personal lives. But when they encounter a series of bizarre deaths which all appear to lead back to a new designer drug called Synchronic, the two men find their bond put to the test as their worlds are unexpectedly thrown into chaos. Effortlessly blending heady metaphysics with relatable human emotion, co-directors Benson and Moorhead continue to prove themselves the masters of heartfelt genre storytelling. Wildly imaginative, thrillingly eccentric and positively dripping in potent foreboding, this is a trip well worth taking – although where you’ll end up, nobody knows.
These members of the filmmaking team are expected to attend the festival:
- Aaron Moorhead, director; Justin Benson, director.
