During his hiatus from USA’s “Graceland,” Brandon Jay McLaren will star in and executive produce an untitled indie feature for The Milwaukee Collective.

Torre Catalano is directing the film, which follows Chris, a young girl who runs away to a friend’s vacation home after her boyfriend cheats on her. When her friends crash the retreat, things get quickly out of control. Rebelling against their normal, upstanding everyday lives over the course of one night, they test the limits of monogamy, friendship, betrayal and freedom.
