RAC has delivered a truly thought-provoking short film experience for Strangers cut “Tear You Down,” a pair-up with Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros vocalist Alex Ebert.

Here we see main RAC man Andre Allen Anjos falling into the ranks of a religious collective after receiving an invite from a pretty young woman. Andre arrives at a house that serves as the base for the group, where he passes through an initiation process, and finally is accepted as a member.

The police eventually raid the collective’s home, but there’s a twist ending that poses a specific question: Whether you belong to a religious cult or not, don’t we all serve the purpose of some larger group or other in the end?

Watch RAC’s “Tear You Down” video, a short film of sorts that was created by the Martin Agency, above.
