The movie revolves around the escalating conflict between a cult leader and his son, who find themselves on opposing sides as they approach the eagerly anticipated cosmic ascension. As the days draw near, the father and son’s divergent perspectives on the impending event come to the forefront, creating a rift in their relationship. Amidst this ideological clash, the son undergoes a transformative coming-of-age experience, prompting him to question the cult’s teachings and consider the possibility of a broader and more meaningful existence outside the confines of the group.

Rapaport’s latest directorial venture is ‘Hippo,’ which follows the peculiar adolescent Hippo and his Hungarian step-sister Buttercup as they grapple with the challenges of coming of age in late 1990s America, all while living under the roof of a mother who has been institutionalized at least once. The filmmaker also directed the short film ‘Andronicus,’ a narrative that takes a disturbing turn during a family therapy session. Additionally, he helmed four episodes of the TV series ‘My Unacceptable Addiction.’

Green’s most recent directorial and production venture is ‘The Exorcist: Believer,’ which revolves around the mysterious disappearance of two girls into the woods, their subsequent return with no memory, and a father’s quest for answers. He directed ‘Halloween Ends,’ bringing the saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode to a spine-chilling climax in the final installment of the trilogy, which stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Andi Matichak.

In addition to his directorial work, Green has been producing HBO’s ‘The Righteous Gemstones,’ a series that delves into the world of a famous televangelist family with a history of deviance, greed, and charitable work. His producing credits also include ‘Dickinson,’ ‘Halloween,’ and ‘Red Oaks.’

Albuquerque, where the filming of the movie will start, is a significant location for productions such as ‘Love Lies Bleeding’ and ‘Obliterated.’
