We have been sent over not only the new poster but a new set of images
A suspenseful look at the lengths people will go to gain freedom, BEYOND UTOPIA follows various individuals as they attempt to flee one of the most oppressive places on Earth, a land they grew up believing was a paradise. At the film’s core are a mother desperate to reunite with the child she was forced to leave behind; a family of five — including small children and an elderly grandmother — embarking on a treacherous journey into the hostile mountains beyond their border; and a man of God on a mission to help these desperate souls.
Gripping, visceral, and urgent, BEYOND UTOPIA embeds the viewer with these family members as they attempt their perilous escape, palpably conveying life-or-death stakes.
