Sand and Stones
In a near future, normal life on Earth has been decimated. Paul (Nicolas Cage) and his twin teenage sons, Thomas and Joseph, have been living a half-life – tranquility by day and torment by night. When the sun sets, ferocious creatures of the night awaken and consume all living souls in their path. One day, Thomas doesn’t return home on time from a visit to his crush, the nearby farm girl, Charlotte. Paul chooses to leave the safety of their fortified farm, risking his life, to find Thomas before the creatures arrive. Just as he finds his boy, a nightmarish battle ensues and Paul is nearly killed by the creatures. Back at the house, Joseph is scared and all alone to defend himself against the nightly attack. He succeeds by outsmarting the creatures, even capturing one as he survives the night. At dawn Joseph goes out and finds his brother with their badly injured father. The twins devise a desperate plan for surviving the coming night. Thomas and Joseph together use their courage, ingenuity, and everything their father has taught them to keep him alive.
