Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
On 8 September 2018, it was announced Roadside Attractions had acquired the distribution rights to the film, indicating a likely early 2019 wide release, however the film was finally released in the United States on 24 January 2020. See more »

How can a movie with such good and noble intentions, augmented by some of the most heart-felt acting I have seen in a long time, leave me so disappointed?
According to what I have read, writer-director Todd Robinson had wanted to do a film about Medal of Honor recipient William H. Pitsenbarger for over a decade, but had to fight development hell and studio indifference.
My problem is the film used a fictional investigation to frame the story, hence the opening title card that said: "Inspired by True Events." In doing so, the film-makers shifted the focus on the investigator, not William H. Pitsenbarger.
It is encouraging that Hollywood is finally giving our veterans from the Vietnam War son long overdue recognition. The story of William H. Pitsenbarger is truly inspiring. It did not need the fictitious artifice of a fake conspiracy story to make it more compelling or relevant.
For good intentions - 10
For execution - 5
