A FILM BY BILLY O’BRIEN

STARRING JOHN LYNCH, MORJANA ALAOUI, ANTONIA THOMAS, CRAIG CONWAY AND BETH WINSLET

SCINTILLA is a science fiction thriller set deep underground in the wilds of a former Soviet state, where strange genetic experiments are taking place. JOHN LYNCH (Black Death, In The Name of The Father, BBC’s The Fall,)a war weary mercenary, is hired to lead MORJANA ALAOUI (Martyrs), a company scientist, to the secret underground laboratory. There, with his team of mercenaries, they intend to steal the research in the laboratory.
