Synopsis

James has served time for drowning a little boy when he was a child, although the body was never found. A visit from his victim’s mother upon parole sends him on a quest to find the truth. With little time and danger at every turn, James risks his freedom and his life to uncover a trail of sins.

Our take

In this dark thriller, an unsolved murder haunts a community and exiles the young suspect from his adulthood. The search for the truth behind traumatic events guide the film’s carefully plotted mystery, which moves in hypnotic rhythms with a rich cast of characters and an enveloping sense of place.
