Coherence

SYNOPSIS

On her way to a dinner party with good friends, Em discovers that her phone has not only lost power, but has literally cracked, the first abnormality on a night that will turn into a mind-bending journey that twists reality over on itself. As unexplained events begin to stack up, the dinner guests realize that they are trapped in an impossible puzzle. Worse, Em begins to suspect that someone from their own house may be in league with an ominous and possibly dangerous house two dark blocks away.

Relationships strain under the pressure. Secrets are revealed. Tensions push toward a breaking point and for Em, the prospect of continuing in the house becomes even more unbearable than whatever unknown fate lies down the road.

Writer-director Jim Byrkit makes his feature debut by allowing his cast absolute freedom in exploring the boundaries of their reality. Largely improvised, the film nonetheless turns on immaculately designed reversals and revelations, uncovering a master plan for a story that spans time and perception.
