Inspired by true events, the film follows a harrowing day in an American farm town. Disaster strikes when teenager Cody Rose is entrapped in a 50-foot-tall grain bin. When the corn turns to quicksand, family, neighbors, and first responders must put aside their differences to rescue Cody from drowning in the crop that sustained their community for generations.

The film screening is part of Maryland Farm Bureau and Nationwide’s seventh annual grain bin safety campaign, which aims to prevent injuries from happening by widely sharing safe bin-entry procedures, such as maintaining quality grain, testing bin atmosphere for toxic gases, and wearing proper safety equipment.

Maryland Farm Bureau and Nationwide will be donating a grain bin rescue tube to a select fire department in the state. The recipient will be announced at the film screening. Local communities are encouraged to enter the Nominate Your Fire Department Contest for an additional chance to win a grain bin rescue tube and a grain bin entrapment rescue training session.

An online RSVP for the screening of “SILO” is available at bit.ly/SILOMovie. More information on the film is available at silothefilm.com.
