A group of Kansas City filmmakers has a short film that debuts at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

The annual festival begins Thursday.

Crude Oil is a 15-minute film that was shot entirely in the Kansas City and Lawrence areas. 

"The film is essentially about a person who's in a toxic relationship, and her breaking free with her useless superpower," said Andreina Byrne, producer and star of the film.

The process of turning the 26-page script into the complete project took a little more than a year. It was written and directed by Christopher Good.

"It's very exciting, it feels warm and fuzzy to feel like people can come together and make things happen," Byrne said.

The filmmakers are hoping for a good response to the project and for its messages, Byrne said.
