Official Selection: Rise

A young boy wakes up beside his sister in an abandoned car. As the sirens grow closer, he realizes he alone can keep his sister asleep, and the truth away — until someone opens the car door, and the world is forever changed.

Director Darcy Miller is originally from New York City, and currently lives in Portland, Oregon.
