Storyline

Years ago Stanley DeBrock, a mentally challenged man, was implicated in the disappearance of Naomi Bridges. Now his twin brother Stone must restore honor to the DeBrock name. Returning home to the small East Texas town of Atwood, Stone is immediately thrown into the mix of a tragic past and an uncertain future. With hopes of rekindling a relationship with his life-long love Diane, Stone encounters his biggest challenge...finding the strength to forgive Stanley. Meanwhile, Stone's uncle Earl Wayne is in debt with two local drug lords...a debt which he cannot pay. Desperate, Earl Wayne and his brother Peebo force Stone into a scheme against Stone's father in order to save themselves. With drama, suspense, and a shocking conclusion, the darkest secrets of the DeBrock family are revealed. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Because of prior scheduling conflicts, Marc Macaulay and Pruitt Taylor Vince could not work on the same day, so the filmmakers decided to shoot their performances of the only scene their characters had together separately on different days. First, Pruitt filmed his performance using a stand in to act opposite of, and two days later Marc filmed his performance, again using a stand in. Through editing, the two performances were pieced together seamlessly. This resulted in a powerful scene between the two actors. See more »

Great film!
24 June 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The plot of this film touches home for me on many levels, with family members abusing drugs and bringing other members down with them. We all have one bad egg in the family that makes everyone else suffer because they have chosen to mess up their own life. If you are from a small town, you will relate to this film even more than most, as Stone leaves his hometown for the bigger, better city of Hollywood. Ambitious with his dream to become famous, his ego is slowly shattered when realizes how hard it really is to "make it". After living in Los Angeles for years, Stone returns home to rekindle an old flame, only to discover more than he had anticipated. I love how his hometown thinks he is rich and famous, only from acting in one movie. HA!...Typical small town mentality.

Most of the characters in the movie demonstrate the dark sides of their lives and struggles with loved ones without sugar-coating it, pretending to be some Brady Bunch family. Everyone can find a certain similarity with one of the main characters; and you will definitely find a character that relates to one of your family members as well.

So many words were said through these actors without saying a word, showing the way we hide our feelings and emotions in uncomfortable situations. The acting is superb. The uncomfortable moments of silence between the characters, speaks volumes. Some might find that the film is slower then usual because of these moments, but I found it to be very real in the way people interact. The pace definitely picks up toward the end with lots of action and a GREAT twist.

I really enjoyed this movie because it is about bad blood within a family and finding yourself… something I am sure we have all struggled with at some point in life.
