A crowd of locals, American ex-patriots, and assorted foreigners gather at a boozy London pub to watch the 2016 US presidential election. As dawn breaks, emotions escalate and the event takes a turn for the worse. 

Director’s Statement: Ryan Scafuro 

A few days before Election Day, it occurred to me that the results of the vote wouldn’t be called until 5:00 or 6:00 o’clock in the morning London time. As a relatively new American transplant to the UK, I didn’t really have anybody to watch the results come in with. I looked online and found a pub that was going to stay open until 7:00am for an all-night viewing party. It was going to be another historic vote regardless of the outcome; this time I wanted to film it in whatever capacity I could.
