A high school student, obsessed with the military and destined for service in the Marines, acquires a video tape - the contents of which depict a government backed murder. Within second of viewing the footage, he finds himself on the run from near-invincible forces. With no one to turn to, he must use the skills he's spent his whole life researching to outsmart the smarter and destroy them before they destroy him. Written by
Before festival screenings, the movie was first shown at The Spar Restaurant on Long Island, Maine. Because many of the participants were locals, Eric Norcross felt the best way to thank them was to give them a look at the movie before the rest of the world. Following the screening, one of Geistert's student films was also shown. See more »
The Commanding Officer says "Fucking Naval Air-Force" - there is no Naval Air-Force (as the director/actor has admitted to). It's called Naval Aviation or in the context of the dialog it would have been "Fucking Naval Aviators". See more »

A credit for the owner of a car the director crashed during the production appears very small, compared to the other credits. See more »
I enjoyed this film. Unlike all of the other movies Norcross has made, this one had a lot of internal struggles happening with the characters. Whether that was his intentions or not, I felt there was quite a bit of attention paid to the character development. You have Shawn, the hero of the story who is supposed to be all out military no matter what. He's only in high school, sure, but he can't wait to graduate and go to boot camp! That in itself is a study into the psychology of today's youth. Are they really that desperate to go out and kill people? The other is the young garrison commander that is played by the director. He's an evil, greedy, vindictive prick! What the heck could have happened to him so early on in life that he'd get involved in government cover ups at such an early age? As a Psychologist that has been running my own practice for 15 years now, I cannot begin to elaborate on how unstable the two characters were.
As a movie, it is entertaining about 90% of the time. There is a cool scene with the Coast Guard and there is a nicely orchestrated vehicular chase scene. It has all the makings of a good action movie except that it's only slightly shorter than a half an hour long. The music was very engaging and many of the scenics of the New England coast were downright beautiful. As a native of Maine, I really enjoyed the use of the locations the most.
