Synopsis

This summer Brandon and Malik will stumble upon a family secret that unlocks mysterious visions and abilities. When a pair of local troublemakers ambush them in the woods, however, super powers alone won’t ensure their survival.

Of Note

Other is a Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Coming-of-Age story inspired by Negro folktales about Africans who employ magic to help them escape slavery. I wanted to bring the magic of these tales to a modern context to explore themes around survivor’s remorse, depression, and reconnecting with one’s roots.
