Affected: The Story of US

RELEASE DATE: 2021

SYNOPSIS: Affected tells the story of a small business owner that lost over 90% of his revenue in a matter of months after Covid-19 hit America. Frustrated and broke, he decided to embark on a journey to document the lives of all the others that have been impacted by Covid.

Throughout his journey, we explore the immeasurable gaps in society, race, education and medicine that have been exponentially magnified. On top of that, a new divide is on the rise between those that think Covid is a mere hoax that’s killing business, jobs and our economy, and those that think this is one of the biggest pandemics that human beings have ever witnessed
Will these differences cause us to grow further apart or will we finally come closer together in the face of a new adversary?
