Available on DUST US
In Los Angeles, California, inmate Houston Lamar (Sidney Brown Jr.) prepares to represent himself at an appeal hearing for a murder his mother swears he did not commit. The morning he's to be transported from his prison cell to the court, the sudden appearance of a hovering spacecraft shakes the world outside his prison walls. Trapped in his cell with outside forces threatening the ones he loves, Houston will do anything it takes to escape. Director Chris Mangano tells a character-driven sci-fi short film about breaking free from the faulty system we've created for ourselves and the power of owning our mistakes.
