Get ready for the outrageous coming-of-age love story about growing up...and blowing up.

When students in their high school begin inexplicably exploding (literally ...), seniors Mara (Katherine Langford) and Dylan (Charlie Plummer) struggle to survive in a world where each moment may be their last.

As an unexpected romance blossoms between them, Mara and Dylan discover that when tomorrow is no longer promised, they can finally start living for today.

It’s 1999 and over the course of one 12 hour shift at an Arkansas hospital, a junkie nurse (Angela Bettis), her scheming cousin (Chloe Farnworth) and a group of black market organ-trading criminals (Mick Foley, David Arquette, Dusty Warren) start a heist that could lead to their imminent demises.

During a double shift, Mandy’s cousin Regina mishandles a kidney delivery, and chaos ensues as Mandy and Regina frantically attempt to secure a replacement organ.

12 Hour Shift was scheduled to have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April before the festival was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the beginning of WWII, with Britain becoming desperate, Churchill orders his new spy agency -- the Special Operations Executive (SOE) -- to recruit and train women as spies.

Their daunting mission: conduct sabotage and build a resistance. SOE’s “spymistress,” Vera Atkins (Stana Katic), recruits two unusual candidates: Virginia Hall (Sarah Megan Thomas), an ambitious American with a wooden leg, and Noor Inayat Khan (Radhika Atpe), a Muslim pacifist.

Together, these women help to undermine the Nazi regime in France, leaving an unmistakable legacy in their wake.

Rated PG-13 for some strong violence, disturbing images, language, and smoking.
