The small, affluent town of Hilliard is rocked to its core following the brutal murder of a young boy. Heading the investigation, local detective Noah Cordin (Nick Stahl, In the Bedroom) follows a lead that takes him back to his hometown on the other side of Meskada County, Caswell, a town forced to the brink of destitution in the wake of the recession. As his investigation picks up intensity, Cordin is torn between old loyalties and new responsibilities, and the victim's grieving mother launches a battle of will and vengeance with the citizens of Caswell. The ensuing rift between these two vastly different communities in troubled rural America soon opens wide, igniting a full-on class war….

Writer/director Josh Sternfeld's (Winter Solstice, TFF '04) taut script depicts a quintessentially American story of tensions between the haves and the have-nots, using the detective genre as a springboard to examine deeper issues of class and community. Stahl gives a bravura performance as an archetypal American lawman—a man on the border between two worlds whose decisions will determine the fate of both.
