"Up-and-coming ghost story vlogger, Christina, takes a day to view an Arizona bordertown's most iconic and generous landmarks while waiting for her co-host to arrive to investigate a ghost sighting at a historic hotel. Being encouraged by her subscribers to visit nearby places beforehand, like The Lady of Shrine, San Pedro River, and Tombstone's famous O.K. Corral, she gives in and goes live on YouTube. But when a presence follows her while on camera, she begins to wonder if this is all in her imagination or a giant set up by a deranged subscriber." COPYRIGHTED 2019 ©

For EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: Film profits are generated in a multitude of ways including: winning in film festivals, the sale of the film to a distribution company or major studio, foreign sales, domestic sales, ticket sales, video-on-demand agreements, online streaming sales, merchandise, and more. Distribution can be sold to specific markets, such as North America (USA, Mexico and Canada) and then broken into other regional markets or sold on a worldwide scale. In most cases, the bulk of a film’s profits are realized when the film is sold to a film distributor. It is the distributor’s job to market, promote, and release to the general public.
