“Prodigy” was the name of a web service in the dawning days of the Internet. It’s also the name of an apocalyptic thriller coming soon from Uncork’d.
Erick Black is down in the dumps. His wife is dead, he’s got no friends, and he’s been spending his days lately sitting around and popping pills. He feels he’s got nothing to live for. Little does he know…..no one else does either!
Erik’s estranged son appears at the door, announcing that he’s received a psychic vision: “The Earth will go black in three days!” He needs his dad’s help to reach an unspecified destination revealed by his prophecy. Erik doesn’t know if his son is right, but he’s got nothing else better to do, so….off on the journey they go.
Prodigy stars Tyler Roy Roberts (“Z Nation”), Cory Kays (Looking for Andrew) and King Amir Allahyar (Façade), and was written and directed by Nathan Leon. It’s already been nominated for 4 ICFF Awards Including Best Picture, and it’s coming to VOD December 4, followed by a DVD release New Year’s Day 2019. Here’s a little preview….
Erik Black is a broken soul due to the loss of his wife. He spends his days alone and self-medicating. All of that changes when his estranged son asks him to help him reach an undisclosed destination. There, he says, he will receive a divine message he believes will change the course of humanity. To survive they must stick together while fostering a belief in something greater than themselves.
