Storyline

Tom Hawkins is a single father and high-powered executive who has quickly climbed the corporate ladder. On a brief weekend trip to the mall, his son is kidnapped and subsequently murdered in a ritualistic ceremony. When the authorities inform Tom that they have someone in custody who has confessed to the kidnapping, but not the murder, Tom stops at nothing to find out who is behind the killings and exact his revenge - regardless of what it means for him. Following a brutal courtroom attack on the suspect, Tom is ordered for psychological assessments and therapy. Through his counseling, his deep religious faith, and a series of twists throughout the story, Tom reconsiders whether or not his path of viciousness is the right choice - until the improbable killer is revealed. Only God can control what happens after that... Written by Scarlet Sky Productions

Top Notch Thriller
18 June 2018 | by derek-569-839987See all my reviews

This movie has stuck with me for days. I saw that the budget was $200,000. You can see that they put every penny on the screen. The acting was very believable and you're wanting to see justice be done throughout the film. If you support indie films, give this one a shot.
