A taut character thriller interrogating the self-destructive nature of fear.
John 'Mitch' Mitchell is a small town cop unable to forgive himself for the death of a local child. When a dangerous prison escapee is seen by his 5 year old son, Mitch must hack through the town's frenzy sparked by the media, city homicide and bounty hunter vigilantes to find the prisoner. Tormented by guilt and paranoia, he is driven to the brink of destruction – can he forgive himself and rise above his fear to save the town before it implodes?
