Feeling lost and disconnected, veteran Sherman Oliver sets out to the countryside in search of the soldier who saved him back in the war. That man, Franklin Page, has long since moved on - to a wife, two children, and a reliable job in a quiet, rural town.
Upon arriving, Sherman seems at first a harmless, if awkward, shell of a man. But as he inserts himself further into the Pages' lives, he reveals himself to be an angry, unstable individual prone to great jealousy and deep resentment.
The stability Franklin worked so hard to establish is soon threatened, and the violence he believed he'd left behind in the war begins to re-emerge and cloud over both the household and the town itself.
Covering the murder of a teenage victim in an S & M dungeon, an ambitious television reporter becomes more involved in "the scene" than he ever thought possible.
This workshop piece was produced for Maruska Stankova's Directing and Acting Workshop for Camera (DAWC). Partly financed by The Harold Greenberg Fund and shot in two days, a gala screening was held at the Royal Cinema on College Street.
