What will happen in The Desperate Hour?

Yesterday Sky Cinema launched the trailer for new Sky Original film, The Desperate Hour. The film will be released on Sky Cinema and streaming service NOW on 25th February.

While out for a run Amy Carr tries to escape from what is her daily race. Surrounding her is nothing but an open country road during the daybreak in the morning. Everything is silent, nothing but peace of mind as she carries on, until an unforgettable cell phone ring stops her in motion.

What follows is a continuous sequence of her world crashing down in front of her while she’s miles away from home. She learns there is an active shooter at her son’s school. As she’s too far away from home or the holding area for parents she does whatever she can to protect her son and grapple the situation while on the go.

The film is set in a small town, takes place in real time, and predominantly unfolds on a secluded country road as our protagonist tries to keep her teenage son safe.
