About TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES written by Andrew Siañez-De La O and directed by Jasmine Brooks:
Agent Chavez is on her way back to headquarters after losing her partner during a mission gone wrong. Agent Hogan is days away from retiring after twenty five years of service. And thanks to budget cuts, these two agents from The Bureau are going to have to share a dusty motel room in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. But this is no ordinary stopover. As they come to realize The Bureau may have put them directly in harm’s way, these two Agents have to grapple with their darkest memories and deepest regrets if they want to survive the demands of the El Dorado Motel.
