SYNOPSIS

In a small town in 1940′s America, the local doctor’s home would be the safest place to seek refuge. Or is it? This alternate history short, directed by Brianne Nord-Stewart (Trolls, 2009), imagines a world after Japan retaliates over Hiroshima with biological warfare. The Provider is the story of Mr. Connor, an injured man who discovers not only that the doctor is “out”, but also that his wife is taking desperate measures to feed her family. The film stars venerable Canadian actress Gabrielle Rose, in a stellar turn as Mrs. Applebee, along side John R. Taylor as Dr. Applebee, and Andy Thompson as Mr. Connor.
