Storyline

Sheriff Wes Clayton is a compassionate lawman and a Mormon bishop in a quiet Mormon community called Brigham. The tranquil town is shaken to the core when a woman from California is found murdered near her car. Clayton, his young deputy, the town's retired sheriff and his shrewd secretary work with an FBI agent sent to investigate. As a civil and spiritual leader in the frightened town, Clayton must serve both justice and mercy to uncover the town's deepest secrets, find the murderer and keep Brigham from ripping itself apart.

disturbed by this movie
17 December 2003 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie, due to the fact that it was a "serial killer" movie, and was very disappointed. Not only was religion (the predominant religion of this state) a major focus of the story, but the Constitution of our Country was thrown out. Any decent, law-abiding sheriff would NEVER have the members of his church congregation go door to door demanding that they be allowed to search their homes, like it or not. And if they did not agree to it, then the sheriff would come to the house and force it upon them. I am appalled that a filmmaker would put such a thing in a movie and then people say this is a great movie. Doesn't anyone believe in our Constitution any more????
