Songbird

The Only Way Out is Together.


Songbird
The COVID-23 virus has mutated and the world is in its fourth year of lock-down. Infected Americans are ripped from their homes and forced into quarantine camps known as Q-Zones, from which there is no escape, as a few brave souls fight back against the forces of oppression. Amid this dystopian landscape, a fearless courier, who’s immune to the deadly pathogen, finds hope and love with a young woman, though her lock-down prohibits them from physical contact. When she is believed to have become infected, he races desperately across the barren streets of Los Angeles in search of the only thing that can save her from imprisonment ... or worse.

Tomatometer quote iconMuddled, tedious, and uninspired, Songbird’s gimmick never coalesces into a meaningful story about pandemic lockdown.
