THE CLEARING

Horror | 88min 

Synopsis

TOM (Liam McIntyre), a rugged outdoorsman, has grown apart from his daughter MIRA (Aundrea Smith). NAOMI (Sydelle Noel), his wife, is concerned and pushes him to take Mira camping for the weekend in order to bond.

In the wilderness, Tom struggles to connect with Mira. She knows he didn’t want to come and only did because Naomi forced him to. Guilty, Tom strikes a bargain with Mira: they’ll stay until the morning, then he’ll take her back.

Over the course of the day, Tom is forced to take a long hard look at himself as he realizes just how aware his daughter is about his attitude toward her. However, by the evening, it seems like they’ve truly reconnected and the trip has turned out to be the best thing for both of them.

But the next morning Tom awakes to find Mira missing. Just as he spots her, he’s assaulted by an infected horde of zombies. Unable to reach her, Tom yells for Mira to run and hide until he can come, and he’s forced to retreat back into his camper to escape the onslaught of diseased assailants.

Trapped and surrounded, Tom must battle his way out to rescue his daughter before it’s too late.
