Storyline

A military convoy is transporting something apparently for disposal. They pass by Sheriff Abel Marsh's town and they are passing by property that's owned by Amy Franklin who is the girlfriend of Abel's deputy, Malcolm. Before they know it, everything around the property is uninhabitable. The army returns to clean things up and make restitution. But there is one nagging question, was this an accident or was it deliberate? That is something Abel is most interested in finding out. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

I was really impressed with movie
5 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed watching this movie. I don't understand why it did not make it past a pilot show, and the girl in the empty grave did not either. I was so impressed with the movie I actually went to big bear lake, ca where these pictures were filmed. They don't make em like this one anymore. The cast was brilliantly chosen and the area was perfect to really enjoy the shows plot. The show kinda had a magical lure about it, showing the majestic lifestyles of the residents of the town which was Jasper lake in the movie. It for me took me on a journey that I would not experience otherwise. While i was at the real town the movie was filmed i talked with different people that lives there they had interesting stories about the actual filming process. I hope someday the movies will be easily obtainable.
