We have always given a special spotlight to films that have come from our own community here. Since we started in San Diego, and have moved to Orange County, we now consider both locations for this showcase. It is odd thinking of that now that we are virtual for 2020, but it is also pretty darn cool that we get to showcase our people to an audience outside of our exact region!

In an alternate universe, the cures to viruses are addictive. To capitalize on that, pharmaceutical companies sell viruses and their cures together in consumer friendly packages that allow people to experience a near death feeling without any danger, just as long as they inject the cure before it’s too late. Roommates Nick & Felix decide to try a mysterious virus to pass the time, but doing so leads them down a personal and horrific path.


Director: All the way from the mysterious land of Irvine, CA, Kieran Hayag is an aspiring director and writer. He graduated from the Orange County School of the Arts. There, he pursued theatre, but quickly discovered a new love for film. He incorporates elements from films he loves, but also brings his own personal experiences and emotions to the table. Horror, sci-fi, and comedy played a major part in his life, hence the reflection of those genres in his work.
