Set across a post-nuclear landscape, a new society has been formed to work towards a better future. Outside this society rests a colony of settlers which the future left behind. Unable to join with the rest of civilization, the Colony scrounges off what is left of the surrounding desolate land. When a treaty that protects their land is broken between the two societies, the Colony is left defenseless with only its people to make a stand. A group of young men find the courage to lead a movement to save their land and the people in it, but are changed in the process. Their numerous failures shake their spirit as betrayal surfaces among them.
Uprising started as a concept project in early 2013 when Lonely Tom Productions pitched this concept trailer for the CineCoup Film Accelerator in hopes of obtaining a $1M grant towards the production of this film. Over 6 months, Uprising went on to the Top 5 out of hundreds of projects and was pitched live at the Banff World Media festival in front of 200+ industry professionals.
