When a family tragedy occurs at the hands of his employer he decides to take action which forces him to face a terrible childhood secret. Meanwhile, his mysterious co-worker Alison (IFTA-nominated Sarah Carroll) has her own agenda, which puts her on a collision course with James, triggering a dark spiral of deceit, revenge, and murder.
Director Alan Mulligan’s first feature is a deliberate and slow-paced look at modern day greed and desire, and society’s ever-growing need for control.
