Set in New York City amongst the mansions of Riverside Drive, "7 Mafia wives from across the country convene at the request of an unknown blackmailer, only to see their united front quickly crumble, exposing romantic relationships, alliances, and ultimate betrayal. An undercover FBI agent from Miami infiltrates the group and decides to have an affair with one of the older wives. In the midst of their feuds, the wives find their reign of expected privilege has come to an end.

"INVICTA peels back the layers of desire and deceit, exploring the sultry dance between the motivations of youth. Set against the longing for romantic validation as we age, this film takes inspiration from New York City's finest fashion runway, the street." said producer, director, writer, choreographer, editor, Breton Tyner-Bryan.

Invicta features some of New York City's most multifaceted talents, including Sian Berman (The Australian Ballet), Maya Kitayama (Beauty and the Beast, Cole Porter's Can-Can), and Emily Ulrich (Metropolitan Opera Ballet, Other World), with Savannah Cranford (Retrofactory Theater C), Susan Olmos Sabel (American Ballet Theater Teacher Training), Samara Steele (Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater), and Tatiana Stewart (The Deuce, Love Life), INVICTA has been on the festival circuit at Tokyo Shorts, Winner Best Experimental Film, La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival nominated Best Fashion Dance, Best Cinematography, Best Cast Ensemble, Best Music, Berlin Commercial Cultural Impact Award, Raw Selection, Big Apple Agents and Managers Lab Honorable Mention, New York International Women's Film Festival Finalist Winner, Lift Off Global Sessions hosted by Pinewood Studios UK, London Fashion Film Festival, Dances With Films, La Femme Film Festival, and World London Film Festival.

Film threat's editor in chief Alan Ng praised the film stating "I have great admiration for filmmakers who take risks to push the boundaries of storying. Invicta captures the movements of the cast beautifully, especially set against Barbosa's score. Each performer's strengths are on full display, and I found myself completely jealous that I can't move that way anymore. Invicta boasts incredible performances from members of the Breton Follies.

This gathering begins cordially enough, but quickly the daggers come out. Soon, alliances are formed and broken, secret romances are exposed, all leading to the ultimate betrayal. Their thoughts, feelings, and dark motivations were beautifully expressed in their movement and facial expression. Invicta succeeds in telling an engaging and intriguing story.

"A certain raw and real beauty of the women and their motivation through their placement and movement is captured by Tyner-Bryan,...a very fitting statement and one that has been interpreted in a stylish and crafted presentation., said Sabina Dana Plasse of Film Threat.

INVICTA is executive produced, directed, written, choreographed, edited, by Tyner-Bryan who also served as the costume designer (Netflix MOST LGBTQ Channel), sound designer, and casting director, with Director of Photography Michael J.
