Behind the Scenes

The story follows a group of aspiring filmmakers who set out to create the best bank robbery short film as possible, taking the advice of our lead, Mia: a new student, who seems to have an underlying motive besides just helping this crew. Easily influenced by Mia's attractiveness, the director acts as Mia's pawn in her pursuit to actually rob the bank in secret and pin the blame on the group by framing them for the murder one of the tellers.
