Synopsis: BUSHWICK tells the story of twenty-year- old Lucy (Snow) and war veteran Stupe (Bautista). Texas is trying to secede from the U.S., and NYC is being used as a negotiation tool. Lucy meets Stupe after coming up from the subway into the military invasion of Brooklyn. Together they decide to cross the treacherous five blocks of Bushwick - littered with looters, local militias, the invading forces, and one crazy cousin - in order to get home and be reunited with Lucy's grandmother.

[ Radio chatter ]

You know, we're gonna

probably have to sleep

in my sister's empty room.

Probably don't even hold

my hand around around her.


It's gonna be good, right?

Hey, um, you told her

I was coming, right?

I actually haven't gotten

a chance to talk to them yet.

Stop this.

Are you serious?

Just make a good impression.

They're very protective.

Oh. Oh, okay.

Oh, I see...

I see the game we're playing.

I literally almost...

I was like, "Just leave me here.

I'm just gonna live

in the subway forever."

- God.

- They're gonna love you.

Oh, yeah. I really hope so.

Yeah. Yeah.


exit in an orderly fashion.

All service at this station

is suspended.

- That's weird, right?

- This is an emergency.

I don't know.

Trains go out all the time.

At least we didn't get

stuck in the tunnel.

All service at this station

is suspended.

That's like a real-life

thing that happens?

You just get stuck down there?

Yeah, one time

we had a blackout,

and I had to use my phone

for light.

- Are you serious?

- Mm-hmm.

That... You just described

my worst nightmare to me,

just right back at me.

Gives me anxiety just to think

about being stuck there.

Why are you acting

like such a baby?

I'm not a baby. You're a baby.

Your face is a baby.

But it's a normal

human-being thing

not to want to get stuck

underground, you know.

Why do you say I'm weird?

Tell me.

Because you're not

being very manly.

Aren't you supposed to be all,

you know, protective and tough?

Oh. Okay, cool.

I'm supposed to be

protective of you.

I would, if I had, like,

an incentive.

- Like what?

- Um, I can't think of...

Yeah, it feels a little better.

- Mm-hmm.

- I... Yeah.

Manlier, macho, I'd say.

Shut up.

Okay, this is a little weird.

Nobody here, huh?


Where'd everybody go?


I don't know.

They're just ahead of us, right?


It's probably just a drill.

- After you.

- Thank you.

- Yeah.

- [ Man screaming ]

Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.

What the f*ck?

- [ Screaming ]

Holy shit!

- Holy shit.

- We got to...

- No, no, no. Don't.

- What? We just leave him there?

All right.

- Um, let's just...

- Let's just...

No, no, no. Let's just go.

We got to get out of here.


All right. What...


Is there police around?


Where the f*ck is everybody?


Let's get up to the street.

- [ Gunfire ]

Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.

- Back up. Back up.

- [ Helicopter blades whirring ]

- This is not normal.

- What the hell's going on?

Something seriously

must be wrong.

[ Radio chatter ]


Holy shit.


Emergency alert.

I-I don't know. I've never

seen anything like that.

This is an active combat zone.

Deadly force will be

employed against...

All right.

No, no, no.

Where are you going?

You stay here where it's safe.

I'm just gonna go check it out.

Honey, I'll be right back, okay?

- Don't. No!

- Stop.

Oh, my God.

Holy shit.

Holy shit.

Okay. Um, I'm...

I'm gonna go get help.

I'm gonna go get help.

Oh, my God. I'm gonna go

get help at the hospital.
