Former New York Film Academy students, Sara Seligman and Thomas Bond, were awarded a grant from the Tribeca Film Institute for their script, Falcon Lake. With the help of the grant, Sara Seligman will be directing the feature. The story focuses on Ester, who runs a bed-and-breakfast near the USA/Mexico border with her overbearing mother, Teresa. The two of them save their earnings in the hopes of leaving the town behind. However, after two drug runners invade their home, the women are faced with a choice, one that is further complicated by a terrifying secret the women share – one that will ultimately reveal who really is in charge of the house.
