BLINK.
An Independent Film
Three years earlier, a giant eye appeared in the sky, sending civilization into a free fall. As crops failed and governments collapsed, cults sprang up, both worshiping and fearing the Eye, drawing in the lonely, the vulnerable, the fearful, and the optimistic. While most of society soldiered on, outbursts of extreme violence began to infiltrate everyday life, leaving the population bewildered and afraid.
SYNOPSIS
In the wake of his family's massacre, Noah sets out in search of the group he believes is responsible. When he finds himself stranded in a small town, Noah takes a fellow castaway, Mari under his wing. Noah attempts to shift Mari's beliefs after she reveals her interest in joining the group, as she shares a love for the Eye in Sky. They wander through a small town as they await the last bus before the Eye's annual Blink. Wandering through a crumbling infrastructure of a world beset by famine, the two form an unlikely friendship. But when Mari goes to join the group, Noah must decide what is important.
