SYNOPSIS:
The beauty of the land cannot mask the brutality of a small farm town. As harvest draws near, Betty Freeman confronts a terrifying new reality. She goes to desperate lengths to save her family and must coldly decide whom to sacrifice.

First-time writer/director Kimberly Levinís emotionally gripping debut features a riveting performance by Joanne Kelly. Shot on rural Kentuckyís working farms, invoking a kind of heartland neo-realism, Runoff combines a driven narrative urgency with a sharp, almost documentary eye. This skillfully written narrative flips the standard gender dynamic and brings unexpected insight and realism to an established genre.

BIO:
Kimberly Levin is a filmmaker and former biochemist. Levinís narrative feature debut, Runoff, was an Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) Narrative Lab Fellow, an official selection of USinProgress and one of the top scripts in the Nicholl Screenwriting Competition. She is also an award-winning playwright and director who has worked On and Off-Broadway. Her original scientific research on small peptides known as hydroxy-methyl-phytochelatins was published in a widely used chemistry textbook.
