Can a reality show go entirely wrong, turning love into someone’s worst nightmare? For Angela, that is exactly what happens. Angela, the protagonist of Egor Abramenko’s upcoming film, titled ‘God’s Country’, participates in a reality show with her boyfriend, Kyle. At first, the rules of the show ‘Love Without Borders’ seems simple. Its contesting couples, being foreign fiancés, must tie the knot or put an end to their relationship. Angela and Kyle does the same and travel to Kyle’s hometown in Kentucky, to get married within the 90 day time slot, except the so called charming town harbors several sinister secrets. Once the cameras stop rolling, Angela witnesses murders, cult atrocities and a total bloodbath.
The plot for ‘God’s Country’ pretty much makes it clear that the place is anything but any God’s country. If Angela needs to survive, she will have to go back to her own past in hopes of overcoming her present.
Rumored to have Melissa Barrera, the popular star from movies such as ‘Scream 4’, ‘Keep Breathing’ and ‘In the Heights’, in the lead role, ‘God’s Country’ promises a refreshing plot and potential chilling sequences.
