Here’s the first footage from Writer/director Tom Hammock’s post-apocalyptic thriller, The Well, which is set to premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival June 12.

At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen-year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush. It’s been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left.

The Well stars Haley Lu Richardson in a breakout role as a young woman with grit, smarts, and an incredible will to survive.

Additional cast includes: Booboo Stewart (Twilight), Jon Gries (Taken), Nicole Fox (America’s Next Top Model winner), Michael McCartney (The Amazing Spider-Man), Michael Welch (Twilight), Rena Owen, Max Charles (The Amazing Spider-Man), Jacqueline Emerson (The Hunger Games), Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), and Michael Massee (Seven).

The Well will have its World Premiere in The Beyond Category at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival.
