Leave Us Alone

Sam, a city dwelling single mother, inherits a profitable piece of farmland from a grandfather she never knew.

On his deathbed, Sam’s grandfather tells her about a ship that crash-landed on the farm before she was born, and that a deal was made to protect the ship’s cargo. In return for protection, the farm would be ever-producing regardless of weather.

Not heeding her grandfather’s advice, Sam’s world is literally smashed when her grandfather’s wild story begins to ring true. Covering up the disappearance of three missing geologists, Sam is prepared to do anything to protect her son as well as the farm’s dark secret.

Filmmaker’s statement

“Science fiction grabbed hold of me early on. I saw Ripley battle the alien queen in the theatre when I was nine; let’s just say it changed me forever.

At the end of the day, whether it takes place at the bottom of the ocean or on LV-427, great characters and strong stories are all that matters.”
