Tilt stars Christian Calloway, Elijah Collins, and Joseph Cross in lead roles. The story of the movie follows a documentary filmmaker, Joe Burns (Joseph Cross). Joe is married to the gorgeous and talented record producer, Ahna (Alexia Rasmussen). Together, they are expecting their first child. Joe is passionate about capturing the state of the American male in his upcoming documentary.

As the filming progresses, Joe starts to feel a sense of disillusionment towards the project, which gradually morphs into self-doubt and frustration. The pressure of expectations and the fear of failure begin to weigh heavily on Joe, causing him to lose touch with his reality.

Adding to his anxiety, Joe gets entangled with a charming and enigmatic young man, Chase Leonard (Christian Calloway), who confides in him about his secret agenda, and that he’s almost ready to execute it. Chase is disenchanted with the world, angry at his mother, and obsessed with hunting.

As Joe tries to juggle his relationship with Ahna, the demands of his documentary, and his newfound relationship with Chase, he begins to spiral.
