Storyline

Small-town detective Noah Cordin is called to solve a juvenile homicide that occurred during a home burglary in his affluent town of Hilliard. The dead boy's mother, Allison Connor, is a member of the Meskada County Board of Commissioners, and a powerful woman in Hilliard. The entire township of Caswell rallies together in solidarity - not to support her and Detective Cordin's efforts to find the killers (who appear to have come from Caswell) but to keep the way clear for a new business with 500 jobs coming to town.

Did You Know?

Goofs

Meskada County is supposedly a fictitious county in a Midwestern U.S. state (probably bordering Ohio), yet an apology letter addressed to the fictitious city of Hilliard incorrectly cites a Canadian province abbreviation (MB for Manitoba) with the fictitious U.S. postal code 21243. Even if the movie were theoretically set in Manitoba, the postal code format is wrong for a Canadian province--U.S. ZIP codes are generally 5 digits (like the 21243 example), whereas Canadian postal codes are 6 alphanumeric characters (example: one of Winnipeg, MB's postal codes is R2C 1G6).

nuances
21 April 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

the nuances are key of this movie. nuances of feelings, search, truth, love. a small town and its secret. a murder. a mother. a detective. few families. and a business who must save the town. memories of lost time and dimensions of guilty. a film about roots of gestures, skin of expectation and need of sense. ingredients - fear, errors, sins. axis - two young men and their need of escape. a good film in a strange kind. Nick Stahl in an interesting role and a cast without glorious names. a meditation about rules and solutions. and an end as Dostoievsky drop. mercy and wise. image behind ordinary reality. answer for self questions and image of good/bad far from each classical formula.
