Avery Wells (David Call, James White) wakes up in a strange house, head throbbing due to a forced detox session, unsure of where he is. Once a sought-after film editor, he has spent years destroying his life with rampant alcohol abuse. A familiar voice emanates from the other side of the room: Caleb (Jack Davenport, Kingsman: The Secret Service), a San Francisco film producer, has brought Avery to San Francisco to complete the edit on a film stuck in post-production, a drama called Americana starring Avery's estranged sister, Kate (Kelli Garner, "The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe"). Avery now has a chance to stay clean and reconnect with family, but he soon starts receiving menacing calls from a mysterious stranger threatening to reveal Avery's darkest secrets —threats impossible to ignore when Kate is murdered suddenly. As Avery searches for an answer for why his sister was killed, and as he allows his addiction to cloud his judgment more and more, he begins to realize that his search may just be a reaction to the lies he's told since falling off the wagon. Inspired by the paranoid nail-biters of the 1970s and set against the foggy skies, claustrophobic rooms, and twisty streets of the City by the Bay, Americana is a tense indie thriller about facing the consequences of an ugly past.
