Acclaimed filmmaker Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter) proves again that he is one of the most compelling storytellers of our time in this science-fiction thriller that reunites him with his Oscar-nominated Take Shelter collaborator/star Michael Shannon. Shannon stars as a father who goes on the run to protect his young son (Lieberher), and uncover the truth behind the boy's special powers. What starts as a race from religious extremists and local law enforcement quickly escalates to a nationwide manhunt involving the highest levels of the Federal Government. Ultimately risking everything to protect his son, together they help fulfill a destiny that could change the world forever, in this genre-defying film as supernatural as it is intimately human.
