    • Synopsis
    • Feature length drama incorporating lost footage from a 1984 film, Fallout, continues the story of its main character, Alex, a recluse living off the grid in a remote section of the Adirondacks for the last three and a half decades. After a nuclear explosion, he returns to New York City fearing the world has ended.

      A journey of discovery, Alex must first absorb the historical, technological and cultural changes of the last three and a half decades as he retraces his footsteps, leading us into the depths of a very personal story – the fallout of the life he left behind.

      The original film first plays as flashbacks, but is ultimately revealed to be an actual unfinished movie, left in the care of a friend and actor in the film. In an interesting play on fiction and reality, the characters of this story play versions of themselves, introducing an alternate reality where truth and fiction blend in surreal harmony.
