In the twilight of the 1950s, on one fateful night in New Mexico, a young, winsome switchboard operator Fay (Sierra McCormick) and charismatic radio DJ Everett (Jake Horowitz) discover a strange audio frequency that could change their small town and the future forever. Dropped phone calls, AM radio signals, secret reels of tape forgotten in a library, switchboards, crossed patchlines and an anonymous phone call lead Fay and Everett on a scavenger hunt toward the unknown.
The Vast of Night stars Sierra McCormick, Jake Horowitz, Bruce Davis and Gail Cronauer. It is written by James Montague and Craig W. Sanger and directed by Andrew Patterson.
