John Gussman and his daughter Madison have a choice to make. To be a part of a new Chryzinium world or not. What is Chryzinium? What does it offer? And who brings it? A family forced to make a choice.

Director Statement

While Chryzinium may just be a short film, the story is abundant on subject matter, suspense, and visual effects. John Gussman and his daughter Madison are subjects of a post-apocalyptic era in which the controversial life-altering drug, Chryzinium, has become universal law. Chryzinium asks the basic question, how far will we go as the human race to survive?
