One day, the father leaves for good, and Vicente and Nino swear to cover it up. It’s their secret.

Two narratives clash violently in this meditative portrayal of disaffected youth set in a graveyard of abandoned mobile homes known as Sunset Edge. We follow a group of four aimless, suburban teenagers – they skateboard the park, sleep in the sun, and rummage through the decaying remains completely unaware that this is where a lonesome teen is confronting a horrific past. Day turns to night, people disappear, and the secrets of Sunset Edge are revealed in a paralyzing finale. Sunset Edge shines as a mesmerizing indie Southern Gothic tale loaded with suspense and lush visuals.
