On the day before he could lose everything, Elliot finds Chloe.
Falling Overnight tells the story of twenty-two year old Elliot Carson (Parker Croft) on the day before he has risky surgery to remove a brain tumor. Facing what could be his last night, Elliot's path intersects with Chloe Webb (Emilia Zoryan), a young photographer who invites him to her art show. Elliot welcomes the distraction and as the night descends, Chloe takes him on an intimate and exhilarating journey through the city. But as morning approaches, and Chloe learns of Elliot's condition, the magic of the evening unravels, and they must together face the uncertainty of Elliot's future.

About the Film
Shot on a shoestring budget over fourteen summer nights, Falling Overnight was conceived by director Conrad Jackson in collaboration with writing partners Parker Croft and Aaron Golden. The writing team attempted to capture the numbness and isolation that comes from being "one of the sick people", highlighting the bittersweet experience of falling in love when the future is uncertain. Instead of filling the story with the heightened, overly dramatic dialogue and scenes that populate much of contemporary film, the filmmakers created a lifelike world for their characters, pouring their own stories, experiences, dreams, and regrets into the script. Ultimately, it is real life that Elliot will miss.
Leading a dedicated and hard-working skeleton crew coordinated by producers Jed Rhein and Elizabeth Jackson, the filmmakers worked efficiently but meticulously to capture life's most honest moments: a full body laugh, a dropped word, an embarrassed smile. Filmed in open restaurants, underground tunnels, and onlyreached- through-a-half-hour-hike mountaintops, Falling Overnight was micro-budget filmmaking at its most vibrant and ambitious.
