Abandoned by his mother at a young age, 25-year old Presley Alan French (Thomas Stroppel) has grown up in the shadow of his father and a small town, secret militia called The Lodge. Along with his cousins, he is committed for life to participate in the group's self-appointed mission of justice and capital punishment. Ignited by a deep sense of civic duty, The Lodge was initiated many years ago by Presley's father, uncle and other town leaders, when a local girl was murdered and the killer released unpunished.

I saw this movie at the Ashland Independent film festival. I felt it was a good story and believable as an aspect of American life, particularly in the rural Northwest. The violence it depicts was intrinsic to the plot and not just violence for effect. I think the film would have been better with some careful editing. The casting and performances were good. The main character's dilemma was fleshed out well as were his relationships with other characters. The best part was the way the suspense built and you had to wonder how or if he was going to survive. It was easy to develop sympathy for this young man.
I will recommend it to friends and I hope it goes into wide release.
