Shot in New Orleans, White Rabbit is the story of Harlon (Nick Krause, The Descendants), who has been tormented since childhood by visions of the white rabbit that his father (Sam Trammell, True Blood) forced him to kill while hunting as a young boy. Now that Harlon is a bullied teenager, his undiagnosed mental illness has started to manifest itself in increasing troublesome ways. He begins hearing voices and imagines the characters in his dark comic books are speaking to him. When a rebellious new girl (Britt Robertson) moves to town, she and Harlon become fast friends. But when she betrays him, the rabbit, along with other imaginary characters, taunt him into committing one final act of revenge. The line between reality and Harlon's imagination begin to blur in this intense dramatic thriller.

Directed by Tim McCann, U.S.A., 2013, 90 mins.
