A dystopian thriller about the nature of humanity and morality which throws us into a war-torn world set in the not-so-distant future.


Terrorism is the new norm as factions have emerged all over what used to be the United Kingdom. During the opening scenes, we see high-ranking soldier and fearless mother, Rebecca Varshini-Howell, search for her inquisitive seven-year-old daughter, Millie, in the army base which they call home. 

Through Rebecca’s flashbacks, we slowly uncover more details about the start of the war. The main narrative follows Rebecca on an important mission to destroy the faceless culprit of a huge explosion at an allied faction.


When it is uncovered that the perpetrator is no more than a child, Rebecca is faced with a moral dilemma with devastating consequences.

Originally written as a short film, Torn is being re-imagined as a feature film and is open for collaboration.
