Storyline

Once a promising writer, John Hayson now gets by on the odd writing job. A personal tragedy has left him dispassionate about the world and his work and he lives his life in limbo. In the midst of this existential crisis he attends a high school reunion and meets three old friends; acquaintances he's tried to forget but who now emerge like ominous shadows from his past. Once again, face to face with the love of his life, Hayson tries to right old wrongs and get his life back on track. However, life has other plans, and he realizes that the past is best laid to rest or it might haunt you forever. He soon finds himself embroiled in a nightmarish brew of deceit, passion and murder. Wanted by the police for a heinous killing, he must choose between succumbing to his darkest desires or the light that will renew his faith in himself and his future. Written by Anonymous

For a beginner crime thriller, I thought it was awesome!
14 February 2007 | by homekathavenSee all my reviews

From start to finish, I enjoyed this film. The frequently used aerial shots and the fast editing kept me intrigued throughout. The ending I thought I had figured out and the exciting plot changed again and just when you think you have figured out the ending again you are again pleasantly surprised. A few of the actors and actresses did brilliantly. A few critical points are the "microsoft paint edited pictures" on the mantelpiece, poor continuity when the bruise on the main lady characters face disappears and then returns. Other than that, if you like crime thrillers and love creating films watch this for inspiration. I Loved it. I have to keep typing so this makes the comments page so hopefully you liked this film as much as I did.
