High school can be hell. Metal-thrashing Brodie is an outcast in a small town until he meets a kindred spirit in metalhead Zakk. After starting their own band, Brodie and Zakk's resentment of the suburban wasteland leads them to a mysterious piece of sheet music said to grant Ultimate Power to whoever plays it. But the music also summons an ancient evil entity known as Aeloth The Blind One, who threatens to tear apart existence itself. It's up to Brodie, Zakk and their mates to stop a force of pure evil from devouring mankind.

Jason Lei Howden won the contest and his film premiered at the 2015 South By South West Festival to great critical and popular acclaim.
