The Wall at the End of the Road

Institute History


At the height of the Superbug Era in near-future South Carolina, an ambitious young spray crew chief must put his dreams on hold after a new bloom of poisonous mold throws his rural town into quarantine. Under the new Wall Act legislation, King and his family are required to work community service jobs until their area is returned to sanitary status and their wall can be removed. But when a local medical inspector tries to pin the origin of themold on King, he turns to a challenging former co-worker with new questions about why he isn’t yet sick, why GovCo is paying tidy sums for “blood donations,” and how he can save his family in a world where walls of all kinds are closing in on them at every turn.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
