H/armed follows a man known as Estes, who must try and bring logic and reason to thirty-nine others, who find themselves at the bidding of a bloodthirsty Director inside a department store. This man who is heard, and never seen, warns of deadly consequences should these forty individuals not abide by his instructions for those paying to view the livestream via the darknet: If you try and escape, you die. If you do not fight, you are killed by the security team. The last to survive earns the right to leave alive.
This darkly comedic, thrilling horror satire, addresses the societal norm of control through obedience. A story that uses ultra-violence to express ideas, and address stereotypes portrayed by Hollywood and accepted by the general masses. Including the state of race, gender, sexual identity, and the power of individualism against bigotry.
The voices of a few cannot control the actions of the many.

Beware of shapes the shadows make
For you will be the next it takes
