A movie made in Dunkirk in September by two local residents will premier on Dunkirk’s local cable access Channel 12.

The plot centers around twin brothers separated at birth. The movie was shot at various locations in the Dunkirk area, including the Sheraton Harborfront Inn and along Central Avenue. The soundtrack was performed by the local band “Asylum.”
