One night in New Mexico, in the late 1950s at the dawn of the space-race, two radio-obsessed teens discover a strange frequency over the airwaves in what becomes the most important night of their lives and in the history of their small town.

Featuring a mood of mystery, with tone and style to spare, this “gets-under-your-skin” indie science-fiction harkens back to the days of genre radio dramas and when we we were even less sure what goes bump in the night.


Windows open. Short sleeves. Late sunsets. And the sound of a radio wafting through the air, setting the stage for the conversations and music of a Summer to remember. From iconic music to influential speeches — whether regulated, from a “pirate” setup,  or beyond our solar system — radio shapes our auditory experiences at any age. Join The Little for “Summer Airwaves: Radio on Film” and experience iconic portrayals of radio on the big screen.
