When a convicted drug courier leaves prison after 22 years for one youthful mistake, he just wants to start over and obey the law. But, unable to find work, he's forced to take a supposedly legitimate job with his old crime partners. And they have big plans for their newest employee.Written by

During the Q&A session for a 2016 festival screening of the film in New York City, when asked if he had any advice for aspiring young filmmakers in the crowd, writer/director George A. Pappy Jr. replied: "Given my experience over the past ten or twelve years, I'd say this: Making a good film (or two) is certainly possible despite all the odds stacked against you. However, even if you do succeed on that front, it doesn't guarantee that you'll be able to make a viable (and consistent) living as an independent filmmaker, especially someplace like New York or LA, where the cost of living is very high. It's a funny business, especially nowadays, and the financial rewards are not always as merit-based (or inevitable) as you'd expect from virtually any other line of work. It's important to know this going in as it may eventually inform your decision to stay or to leave the industry. Whatever you decide, I wish you good luck.". See more »
When Frank spins the open cylinder of his double-action revolver, we hear a clicking sound. In reality, the cylinder on such a revolver spins unimpeded and makes almost no noise when rotated in the open position. Clicking cylinders are unique to single-action revolvers. See more »

This is a thoughtful, simmering drama about a man struggling to start over and do the right thing, with a strong yet nicely understated performance by Kenneth Johnson. Rainn Wilson has a small but solid role as the cousin who reluctantly lets Frank live in his garage, so long as nobody can see him. If you're tired of crime films with lots of action and little else, here's a grownup character-driven film with an engaging story.
When we screened this film at The Valley Film Festival, it was sold out and got an enthusiastic response. A terrific film from up-and-coming filmmaker George Pappy.
