Description


The Collector set during the Coalition's occupation of Iraq, a team of prison guards become brutalized by war.

Echoes is a bloody story of colonialism, drawing parallels between the lives of a Jihadi bride and a Victorian pioneer.

Angel in a Syrian town, a crackshot sniper is all that stands between the town's citizens and the fearsome approach of ISIS.
