SURGE

de Aneil Karia

Trailer

Synopsis

Joseph works as a security guard at a London airport. The routine nature of his job has led him to an alienating existence, until one day when something inside him goes "click" and his character becomes aggressive and almost criminal. Presented at Sundance and in Berlin and driven by an electrifying Ben Whishaw, Surge is the portrait of a man falling upwards.
