Mixing fantasy, thriller and drama, JACK’S APOCALYPSE is the journey into the mind and soul of a man who’s lost everything as he struggles to stay alive.
Jack Coleman was a well-liked City Councilman with a family and a successful law practice in the small town of Elland. But thanks to a destructive drug and alcohol addiction that’s all gone. Now Jack lives in the big city isolated in his high-rise condo surrounded by computers and flat screens. Estranged from his son for over a year Jack spends each morning recalling the past by watching a slide show of his son and ex-wife while snorting cocaine.
After a night of heavy drinking Jack brings home a random barfly from the trendy downtown bar he owns and while the two have sex, Jack falls on the bed grasping his chest from what appears to be a heart attack.
But the next morning we find Jack alive, sort of, in a dreamlike state watching the slide show. Jack’s trance is broken when he receives a call from his brother Shane who is a Major in the Army. At breakfast Shane informs Jack that the water supply has potentially been contaminated and there’s going to be an attack on the electrical grid in strategic locations throughout the US. Shane asks Jack to take his wife Shannon and daughter Natalie to the family lake house in Elland.
Now Jack is forced to return to the town from which he was disgraced to protect a family other than his own while battling addiction, starvation and looters.
Dubbed a “Must See Film” by Glide Magazine and “Entertaining and Suspenseful” by the Austin American Statesman, Jack’s Apocalypse won the audience award at its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival and the Excellence Award at the Rincon International Film Festival. It stars Dave Maldonado (Trumbo, Deepwater Horizon), Jamie Tisdale (From Dusk Till Dawn: the Series), Tishuan Scott (The Retrival, Results), and Nick Stevenson (Orange is the New Black).More Info
