Sonny Mann, (Timothy Olyphant), an ex-con returning home from prison, creates a new dynamic for both friends and enemies with his arrival. The local power broker, Fred Vance (William Forsythe), wants Sonny back into his shady world. Sonny only wants money due, as his long suppressed desire for Ann (Sarah Wynter), now married to his best friend and local sheriff Dave Lockhart (Josh Brolin), puts at risk life's delicate balance of family and community. Passion and revenge threaten to overtake all as Sonny's anger careens dangerously out of control, leading to an explosive confrontation, and finally to a surprising resolution. Director, Victor Nunez (Ruby In Paradise, Ulee's Gold) maintains his striking visual style, detailed character study, and uncanny ability to garner the bravest performances from the most promising contemporary actors in IFC's indie drama.
