Storyline

Using charts and medical history, actuary Wes Riemann can statistically predict how many years someone has to live. But it's only a prediction. When he discovers the life insurance firm he works for has been canceling policies weeks, sometimes days before the policy holder dies in order to avoid costly payouts, he comes to grip with the impossible - that somehow, they know the exact date when someone will die. In order to prevent the firm from destroying anymore lives, including his own, Wes will risk it all to discover an unbelievable secret.

Solid Indie Thriller with a Sci-Fi Twist...
3 April 2014 | by bkanesSee all my reviews

Okay, maybe I'm biased. But this true-independent thriller is more entertaining than many big budget films I've watched lately.

It's got period elements, subtle humor, social significance, nice action that never goes over-the- top. It's smart, and by not ever dumbing down, it keeps the audience glued to the screen.

Excellent cast local to the production City (Philadelphia) featuring many recognizable actors from recent TV and block-buster hits.

And clearly, writer/director/producer/actor, Mark Kochanowicz, knows his way around a film set. His hands are all over this movie, Nice work.

All in all, this is exactly what independent film should be- interesting, fresh, dynamic.
