Contending with such powerful issues as existential crises and societal dread can often lead people to take themselves off the grid. The infrastructure of surrounding themselves with their family and friends is often the only thing that helps many people from completely falling. The rich character study that morphs social alienation into hope for the future is showcased in the new psychological thriller, ‘The Wolf Hour.’

The stunning character study will be showcased when Brainstorm Media releases the film in theaters on Friday, December 6. The mystery drama, which was written and directed by Alistair Banks Griffin, stars Naomi Watts, Jennifer Ehle, Emory Cohen and Kelvin Harrison Jr.

Brainstorm Media has released the following synopsis for ‘The Wolf Hour’:

It’s July 1977, and New York City is awash with escalating violence. A citywide blackout is triggering fires, looting and countless arrests, and the Son of Sam murders are riddling the city with panic. June (Watts), who was once a celebrated counterculture figure, attempts to retreat from the chaos by shutting herself inside the yellowed walls of her grandmother’s South Bronx apartment. But her doorbell is ringing incessantly, the heat is unbearable, and creeping paranoia and fear are taking hold. Visitors, some invited, some unsolicited, arrive one by one, and June must determine whom she can trust and whether she can find a path back to her former self.
