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

User Reviews

Excellent film. Well acted.
27 March 2017 | by tgoodtomSee all my reviews

The plot is very well done and suspense takes you through to the end. Acting was excellent and especially enjoyed Kevin O'Donnell. His portrayal of a father driven by grief is subtle and riveting at the same time. James Naughton is the perfect police detective trying to solve a tough case with volatile emotions running high. I will not give up the ending but suffice it to say that things are not all that they seem.
