Aneil Karia‘s explosive and daring debut feature features Ben Whishaw as you’ve never seen him before. Filled with edge-of-your-seat tension, Surge is a gripping thriller from an exciting new filmmaker.

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. As he is propelled on a reckless journey through London, his impulses push him closer to the edge – ultimately exploring what it feels like to be alive.
