Actress Cortney Palm appears in co-writer-director Matt Shapira’s thriller, ‘Disappearance.’

Even the seemingly most idyllic relationships can have turmoil lurking below the surface that’s waiting for the right time to be exposed. That’s certainly the case for the troubled marriage between actress Cortney Palm and actor Matt Marsden’s characters in the new thriller, ‘Disappearance.’ The characters’ vision of a seemingly picturesque vacation, and overall life together, have become askew, and potentially deadly, in the film, which is now available on VOD, courtesy of Gravitas Ventures. In honor of the drama’s distribution, ShockYa is premiering an exclusive clip from the movie.

In addition to Palm and Marsden, the thriller also stars Hutch Dano, Jemma Dallender, Reggie Lee, Brian Thompson and Guy Wilson. ‘Disappearance’ was directed by Matt Shapira, who also co-wrote the script with Mike Wollaeger and Dano.

Gravitas Ventures has unveiled the following synopsis for ‘Disappearance’:

When author George Boulangé (Marsden) agrees to the wishes of his wife, Isabelle (Palm), and brings a young and beautiful waitress, Cecile (Dallender), from a café along for their weekend sailing trip, it becomes clear that he has agreed to do this for his own desires to stir up trouble. He also wishes to develop a plot for his new novel, and along the way, ultimately decides that he wants to discard Isabelle and replace her with Cecile.

Isabelle is forced to confront the fact that she is aging out of what George wants in a playmate and spouse, and knows that the only way to hold onto her relationship is to become the alpha in the relationship. But George fights back, forcing them into a game of one-upmanship.

Eventually, Isabelle, Cecile and the ship’s Captain (Thompson), join forces against George, and make their position clear. In the morning, he is reported missing, and Detective Kenny Park (Lee) must sort through everyone’s stories to determine if there was foul play, or if George simply left for greener pastures.
