Since starring as paranoid math genius Maximillian Cohen in filmmaker Darren Aronofsky's 1998 cult film "Pi," actor Sean Gullette has lately turned his attention to filmmaking. With the Morocco-set gritty punk drama "Traitors," he makes his feature film debut as writer, director and producer.

The film revolves around a struggling all-girl punk rock band from Morocco. Newcomer Chaimae Ben Acha stars as the band's lead singer whose recent financial troubles have forced her to take a risky job as a drug mule smuggling hashish for a dangerous drug dealer.

"Traitors," which premiered at 2013's Venice Film Festival, will be made available in the States on VOD on December 23rd with a DVD release slated for February 24th. The film's US trailer has been released, watch it above.

synopsis:
Malika, leader of Traitors, an all-female punk rock band, has a strong vision of the world, her hometown of Tangier, and her place in it. When she needs money to save her family from eviction and to realize her dreams for the band, Malika agrees to a fast cash proposition: a smuggling run over the mountains for a dangerous drug dealer. But her companion on the road is Amal, a burnt-out young drug mule who Malika decides to free from her enslavement to the dangerous drug dealers. The challenge will put Malika's rebel ethos to the test, and to survive she will have to call on all her instincts and nerve.
