King Tide

written and directed by Michael Marrero

King Tide confronts a coastal community thrust into chaos when the government orders them to relocate due to climate change. Amidst the impending crisis, a couple becomes the embodiment of opposing viewpoints. The couples escalate into absurd and outrageous scenarios, painting a portrait of a community torn between nostalgia, resilience, and the desire to protect what they hold dear.
