Los Angeles has been overtaken by a virus known as Sudden Death Syndrome, a disease that causes its victim to die suddenly and has only one symptom... spontaneously breaking into well-choreographed song and dance.
Sudden Death! is a 19-minute musical-comedy shot on location in Los Angeles, California in December 2009. The film is writer-director Adam Hall’s MFA thesis film for the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
After a fatal disease that causes people to spontaneously break into song and dance is released in Los Angeles, Nathan Carlson - a scientist who’s developed a “love drug” - is caught in a life and death struggle… literally.  Nathan must race against time to find a cure and save the city – fighting government corruption, discovering true love and randomly breaking into song along the way.
