DMZ Trailer

The trailer takes the viewers to a place which is far from the present day United States. Of all the high standing skyscrapers, what’s left is rubble, stones, dust and overgrown flora. Among the cross fires and power grabbing, Alma finds her way in the DMZ of Manhattan in pursuit to find her son. However, it isn’t going to be easy. Standing in her way is Benjamin Bratt, a gang leader who started controlling the city when everything went into chaos. 

DMZ Plot

The story follows Alma Ortega, who is a medic, and her search for her son in a dystopian United States where the duo got separated in an evacuation drive. The country has been torn apart due to the second Civil War and one of the demilitarized zones is Manhattan. However, though it is demilitarized and cut off from the outside, Manhattan too has become the ground for power struggle and internal conflicts. With all such dangers and her life at stake, Alma sneaks in to reunite with her lost son.
