Momentum Pictures brings NEON LIGHTS to VOD and digital platforms July 12. Rouzbeh Heydari directed from a script by Dana Abraham, who also stars alongside Brenna Coates, Brit MacRae, Stephen Tracey, Rene Escobar, Jr., Erika Swayze, Lauren Howe and Kim Coates. The synopsis: “Thirty-year-old tech tycoon Clay Amani [Abraham] is on the verge of a hostile takeover of Tempest Tech, all while he attempts to overcome mental health disorders and childhood traumas. Upon the advice of his therapist Dr. Mori [Brenna Coates], Clay retreats to an off-grid location for a family reunion with his misfit siblings, in order to ‘face his traumas, head on.’ During the reunion, family secrets are revealed that ripple tidal waves through the already strained relationships between Clay and his family. In hopes of turning this tragic encounter around, Denver Kane [Kim Coates], Clay’s trusted advisor, attempts to help Clay navigate and come to terms with what’s truly required to get back on track, and focus on what’s truly important: to retake control of his company. But things go awry, and Clay is left fighting for more than just his company when guests begin disappearing.”
