Euphoria Blackout

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Caitlin is a young freelance photographer living in an oppressive and impersonal city. Following a series of events, both economic and spiritual, that result in a global recession and subsequent mass unemployment, Caitlin watches as the people around her attempt to come to terms with living a life that no longer seems safe or familiar.

At first Caitlin sets out to record the everyday people affected by the crash, whose plight is being almost completely ignored by the mass media, who seem interested in reporting nothing but feel-good propaganda and help perpetuate what amounts to a news blackout.

With the crisis continuing to grow, many turn to religious cults that recommend increasingly violent action against the people they believe to be responsible for the global recession.

As lawlessness descends upon the city, what remains of the established orders begins a brutal crack down and Caitlin is forced to take drastic action in order to save herself.
