NFTS Film Brutal Directed by Jordan Chandler starring Hopi Grace

A Psychological Horror/thriller Directed by Jordan Chandler

-A Mother named Maya absentmindedly forgets her 8 week old baby outside a grocery store. When she returns to claim back her child, it’s gone. In her pursuit to retrieve the child, Maya must climb a tower block where she enters a surreal and brutal confrontation of the truth: she cannot and will not rear this child.

Hopi Grace plays the role of Bridget - She’s been the manager of the launderette since she was 17 years old. She’s not the type of manager who’s drunk on power, the novelty wore off years ago, she’s more of a mother hen! 

The shots of this are looking so great and we cannot wait to see the end project.
