Avery Road

This short film dives headlong into the gray area of polarizing topics: abortion, gun control and their mutual goal to save lives.

Like so many modern American towns, Avery Idaho is a place plagued by polarized politics that turn neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, and split families.

Good intentions go awry when the lives of two families intersect one day in the early 90's outside a women's health clinic. Unaware of the lasting effects of that day, now, twenty-five years later, our characters find themselves in an America that has never been more politically divided since the civil war. These two families are about to start a civil war of their own as they fail to show empathy for each other, choosing instead to only focus on differences.
