Making our list of the 20 Most Anticipated Films Of The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, "Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors" caught our attention by taking a true story set against a recent natural disaster and delivering what sounds like a potent little drama.

Directed by New York filmmaker Sam Fleischner ("Wah Do Dem") in the Rockaways during the waning days of Hurricane Sandy, the movie uses that setting to tell the story of an autistic youth named Ricky who, after a particularly difficult day at school, escapes into the subways. It's here that he starts his real journey, on a days-long voyage of discovery while, above ground, his mom frantically searches for him. This exclusive poster nicely captures what looks like a defining moment from last fall, spun into an intimate personal tale.

"Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors" premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday, April 20th at the Clearview Cinemas Chelsea 7.
