Lead actress Allison Walter, producer/actor Robert Campbell, and writer/producer/lead actor Sam Brittan will be present for a live Q&A!

A twisted thriller with dynamic performances and dramatic tone shifts, TEARSUCKER tells the dark and surreal story of emotionally vulnerable women who are preyed upon by a psychopath who wants to suck their tears. Lilly (Allison Walter) is a trauma survivor who is desperate to heal and get on with her life. Despite the support of her best friend Deb (Danielle Mcrae Spisso), she is completely isolated. But when she crosses paths with a charming stranger, Tom (Sam Brittan), at the park, she feels hope for the first time in months. However, things take a disturbing turn when Lily discovers that Tom has an unusual appetite for tears… and will stop at nothing to get them.
