film synopsis

Several militia men, two of whom are played by James Badge Dale and Brian Geraghty, try to suss out the culprit in a police shooting in this dark, gritty drama. Inside an isolated warehouse, the men distrust one another as Gannon (Dale), an ex-cop, interrogates them. The tension builds as suspicion grows, pitting the men’s self-interest against the overall welfare of the group. Conspiracy and distrust haunt the men as their individual secrets are exposed. Each one bears a secret that reveals why he came to join the militia — some are what you would expect, and some are a surprise. As a result of being exposed, they are driven to act in bad faith and turn on one another, and secrets and lies will be their undoing. There’s also a nasty twist hiding around the corner as the situation gets even grimmer.

In competition for the Ricky Jay Magic of Cinema Award.
