Storyline

With his alcoholic former wife, Cindy, always absent, the young single father, Ethan, is trying his best to bring up his three-year-old son, Nate, all by himself. However, as the father and son embark on a bonding trip in the snow-covered wilderness of the Rocky Mountains, one wrong decision and a momentary lapse of judgment seal Nate's fate, resulting in his disappearance. Now, tragedy and profound guilt divide the close-knit, working-class community of Angels Crest, as the fading boundaries between right and wrong throw the town into confusion. Can the truth set one free? Can there be forgiveness for the terrible mistakes of the past? Written by Nick Riganas

A tragic story lacking
17 October 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

Grief permeates a small Rocky Mountains town after a little boy goes missing and is found dead by his father. For a film which seems to suggest mystery not one of the possible explanations for the disappearance ever comes to pass. Instead we are left with grief and pity for the main character. The performances are respectable and it is intriguing as a story because of the mystery but instead we are left with a depressive conclusion.
