"An audacious and chilling parable that questions misdirected over-reliance on gadgets and God. The parallels between Alli's futuristic tale and the assault on many basic contemporary liberties seems too close for comfort. TRAGOS is an intellectual adrenaline rush of hypnotic strength and emotional depth." -- Phil Hall, filmthreat.com (four stars)

"The story might sound like an opportunity for countercultural self-congratulation, with heroic pagans fighting off an oppressive church. Yet the prosecutor, though misguided, is one of the most sympathetic characters in the movie, and the priest who regularly gives him advice 
offers nothing but wisdom."
 -- Jesse Walker, REASON Magazine

Underground San Francisco. An urban tribe of technopagans perform their ecstatic rites in "Tragos", a virtual reality program. When their leader, Bella Luxor, overamps the VR program she goes blind and her sister Vivika suddenly dies. Was her death accidental or was the Tragos program used as a suicide machine? 

Robert Logos, a fundamentalist Christian attorney, views Vivika's death as the workings of a satanic suicide cult and hires a mole to infiltrate the cult and bring their demise in this chilling cyber-noir witch hunt tale of tragedy and redemption in the hyper-digitized era of the future now.
