The hero of the brain-bending sci-fi thriller literally travels through multiple states of mind.

MINOR PREMISE, directed by Eric Schultz from a script he wrote with Justin Moretto and Thomas Torrey, arrives in select theaters, virtual cinemas and on VOD/digital platforms tomorrow, December 4 from Utopia Distribution. Sathya Sridharan, Paton Ashbrook and TWIN PEAKS’ Dana Ashbrook head the cast; the synopsis: “Attempting to surpass his father’s legacy and pressured by an old colleague [Dana Ashbrook], a reclusive neuroscientist becomes entangled in his own risky experiment. Ethan [Sridharan] has now locked himself in his home with his ex-girlfriend Allie [Paton Ashbrook] and the two navigate trauma, ambition and missteps of the past. Diving headfirst into the uncharted equations of the brain, they realize that there is more at stake than just their relationship or Ethan’s reputation. With time quickly running out, he is forced to face off against the darker sides of himself while frantically attempting to solve an enigma that lies within his subconscious.”
