Vertigo Releasing has launched a new trailer for Aneil Karia debut feature ‘Surge’ starring Ben Whishaw.

Joseph (Whishaw) is trapped in a soulless job, living a life devoid of emotion and meaning. After an impulsive act of rebellion, Joseph unleashes a wilder version of himself. He is propelled on a reckless journey through London, ultimately experiencing what it feels like to be alive.

Director Karia says “Though Joseph might seem to be a unique case, I hope that his story is speaking to something much more universal. Now more than ever it feels like we have had enough of surface existence and are yearning for a deeper more present experience of the world. I hope watching this film feels like a visceral and meaningful trip.”
