RIGHT At Your Door, a film following a young couple struggling to cope in the aftermath of a biological attack, promises to leave film fans questioning their own morality.The movie, showing this week at the Odeon, Weston, is set in Los Angeles after a series of 'dirty bombs' have been detonated, scattering poison dust across the whole city.Writer and first-time director Chris Gorak shows the crippling impact a sudden terrorist attack could have on individual's lives as well as public order.The story focuses on Brad, an out-of-work musician, and his wife Lexi, who works in downtown Los Angeles.After the explosions the atmosphere is one of panic and fear. Brad follows official instructions to seal his home to try to keep the virus out, but that also means locking out his wife, who has been infected by the disease.Brad (Rory Cochrane) and Lexi (Mary McCormack) are thrown into turmoil as they struggle to survive.The film explores the despair and panic felt by people caught up in the chaos and questions decisions made in times of crisis.Brad and Lexi face many moral conflicts ranging from, who to trust, what the Government knows and whose advice to listen to.In light of the recent terrorist attacks, this is a stark look at the situations anyone of us could face in the event of a biological attack.
