Written and produced by Tony Dean Smith and Ryan W. Smith in association with Paly Productions, and directed by Tony Dean Smith, Volition is a gritty science-fiction thriller, about a man afflicted with clairvoyance, who tries to change his fate when a series of events leads to a vision of his own murder.

When you know your world is predetermined, it’s hard to care about your choices. This is true for James Odin. On a rain-soaked night in 1991, two cars collide, leaving all drivers dead on the scene, including the mother of the lone survivor — a child — James Odin. It’s a tragedy. But what’s more tragic is that seven-year-old James foresaw the accident happening two months prior. He tried to prevent it, but who’s going to believe a kid who claims to see the future?

Twenty-plus years later, James is a product of the failed foster care system. Knowing that the events of his future are predestined, he’s getting by, using his ability for petty crime and cheap thrills. But when a pre-sentient vision reveals to him his own imminent murder, James must go on the run. Together with a new friend, Angela, he must change the fate he knows is fixed.

Volition will screen at Arrow Video FrightFest on Saturday 24th August 2019 at 11.10pm in the Cineworld Leicester Square Discovery Screen. For more information and tickets, please visit http://www.frightfest.co.uk.
