Greek mythology meets the New York City subway in SUBMERGED, where a sister descends into the underworld to save her brother as the biggest storm in history hits New York.



On the night of the biggest storm in New York City history, Elysia Puente gets a call from her estranged little brother Angel, terrified, begging for help. When the call cuts out suddenly, despite the bad feelings between them, Ellie rushes into the night. Finding his broken phone in front of a barricaded subway station, Ellie follows echoes of her brother into the sinister darkness of the underground, desperate to find him before it’s too late. As the flood waters rise, Elysia descends deeper and deeper into a mysterious and haunting underground in search of Angel.
