When a community in Salt Lake City UT is turned upside down from the disappearance of a high school girl named Theo in the midst of her father's political campaign, an exploration into the different accounts of what went on reveals a much deeper story. Theo's bloody belongings are discovered in the mountains next to a creek with a suicide note, but her body is nowhere to be found. It is up to Detective Stanley and Detective Hobbs to unravel the mystery, and it becomes apparent that Theo had come out as gay just weeks before she vanished. With each clue found, more questions arise, and the detectives begin to suspect that not everything is what it appears to be. What happens when a family unravels due to societal pressure and lack of communication and compassion? What happened to Theo Doran? Written by Zepstone Media

Good Message and Interesting Take on Utah Culture
16 August 2020 | by michelebates-18593See all my reviews

I'll keep this short. This movie is what indie films are all about to me. Low production with high unique storytelling value. If you're looking to watch a new kind of story thats morally focused and keeps your interest and supports independent film this is a gem.
