Tom’s father invented The Feed, but Tom fears it, especially when he learns of his father’s plans to expand it. Then, something – or someone – starts accessing people’s minds through The Feed and ‘taking’ them over. People’s loved ones wake up as someone else, someone who wants to kill them.
 
The ensemble cast includes Guy Burnet (“Counterpart”) and Nina Toussaint-White (“Bodyguard”)  – both of whom will be attending the screening – and also features the star talents of  Michelle Fairley (“Game of Thrones”), David Thewlis (“Fargo”).
