The two-person political suspense thriller features James Badge Dale and Tamara Tunie. The story is described as a "provocative 90-minute theatrical event set in the near future and deals with one of the most talked about topics of this past election. In a time when campaign rhetoric turns into real policies, Building the Wall reveals the power of theater to question who we are and where we might be going."
