SMOKING/NON-SMOKING (aka THE PACK)

Twelve Angry Men meets Silkwood in a suspenseful feature inspired by true stories. Starring Lucie Arnaz (The Jazz Singer) and Elisabeth Moss (Madmen, West Wing, Girl Interrupted).

An ambitious Assistant District Attorney (Carlos Leon, The Big Lebowski) prosecutes a wife and mother (Arnaz) for murder after her 47-year-old husband dies of lung cancer. Their 24-year-old son decides to testify against her. At first this appears to be a ridiculous case but one juror’s doubts force the jury into an intriguing, emotional and complicated choice regarding addiction, loyalty and individual responsibility.

Inspired by documented cases, ‘Smoking/Non-Smoking’ (also known as The Pack) weaves together the jury’s cinéma vérité-style deliberation, provocative courtroom testimony, flashbacks and the family’s intimate home movies.
