Two Rooms

A powerful drama, TWO ROOMS centers around an American civilian taken hostage in the Middle East. Back home, his wife empties a room in her house and waits for his return. While keeping vigil, she's faced with a dilemma: attempt to force the government into action or remain silent and trust that those in power are doing all they can to bring her husband home.

Directed by Mark Robert Swiech
Featuring Kara Schaaf, Joey Borgogna, Joe Lorenzo, and Emily Grace Murray
