Directed by Robert Ross Parker and featuring Ryan McCarthy, Matt Citron, Colleen Werthmann & Jamie Ann Romero, THE CALAMITY takes place as a deadly plague sweeps across the country, spawning an epidemic of paranoia and fear. When one small town shuts its doors to the outside world, its residents realize that the cost of survival may be higher than they thought. Will they trade their freedoms, their loyalties to one another, and their dignity to survive?
