Movie Details

An exquisite corpse-style drama about intersecting lives, The Cliffhanger is a result of the collaborative efforts of 18 Chicago actors and 11 improvisational production teams based in the Windy City. When Iris Peterson checks into a rundown hotel, her presence sets into motion a bizarre sequence of events that will test the resolve of four lost souls -- herself included. As Anthony fights to prevent his brother Darius from making the same mistakes that he did, desperate Nellie prepares to make a clean, albeit painful, break from the past. Redemption won't come easy to Iris, Anthony, Darius, and Nellie, but should they manage to endure the struggle, at least they'll have a fighting chance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
