A Most Favored Nation

Directed by Mira Winick and Jean Carlo Yunen Arostegui

In a dystopian Chicago, almost 20 years after the Axis Powers won WWII, the Nazis begin to eliminate their former Japanese allies and further purge "degenerate" behavior, while a vision of another world — our Chicago, 1963 — spreads virally through hacked televisions. Twelve everyday characters, and the audience, must choose which reality they want and what they are willing to sacrifice for it.
