Michaela, a lost and lonely young woman, gets a mysterious message from the father she never knew, sending her on a journey to discover twisted family secrets. As she uncovers each piece of the puzzle, she descends even deeper into their warped world of pilgrims and pyromania. Dragged out to the desert, and pushed to the very edge, Michaela is forced to make a choice: preserve the delicate web that history has woven for her family, or strike out on her own and destroy the cycle of evil in her blood. That is, if she can survive the fire. Written by

His parents were great. They just played with him all afternoon. I think this is my best picture yet, Dorothy. It's important to see these things. These families. That they exist. The best part... the mom went to go get ice cream and the girl fell off the swing, and the sister put her back on the swing. The dad didn't even move. Not 'cuz he was lazy, but he was like, he knew that's what sisters are supposed to do.

I liked this movie. Not a little, not a lot, but I liked it. It starts out a bit slow, the Arizona scenery is as dry and depressing as one could wish, and every single character is unsympathetic. Michaela (April Wade), the young wanna-be photojournalist, is one of the least attractive leads you will see in a while. She grows on you though, and eventually you reach the point that every movie wants you to reach, you care. All of the other unsympathetic characters do their jobs and there are some interesting role reversals along the way. Give it a viewing and in the end, I don't think you will be disappointed that you watched it.
