During a raging snowstorm, a drifter returns home to the blue collar bar located in the remote town where he was born. When he offers to settle an old debt with a grizzled bartender by telling him a story, the night’s events quickly spin into a dark tale of mistaken identities, double-crosses and shocking violence.
“The Oak Room marks the first step in a new direction for Black Fawn Films and we’re excited to be taking that step with Gravitas,” states director Cody Calahan. “We can’t wait for U.S. audiences to dive into the mysteries of The Oak Room.”
“Gravitas is excited to be able to share The Oak Room with audiences, which is a tight and exciting thriller that feels familiar yet fresh,” Said Gravitas Ventures Manager of Acquisitions, Brett Rogalsky.
