Action at a Distance


In a small Nevada town, out-of-work plumber Chris stumbles across Josh, a charity worker exposing the truth behind US drone strikes in Syria and Iraq. Her fascination with his world and determination to win his approval sends her down a path towards desperation, obsession and the darkest of ethical dilemmas. Action at a Distance explores the relationship between money and morality and the detachment of American citizens from the international actions of their country. ‘An ingenious plot and a head-f*ck of a concept… A really scary, exciting bit of work’ (Steve Waters).
