On a hot summer night in Texas in the late 80s, timid family man Richard Dane (Michael C. Hall) semi-accidentally shoots and kills low-life burglar Freddy Russell, who has invaded his family’s home. This action sets off a chain of events that sends ripples beyond Dane’s small hometown. When word of Freddy’s demise reaches his father (Sam Shepard), the grizzled ex-con rolls into town with vengeance on his mind, and Richard turns to a flamboyant private eye in Houston (Don Johnson) to help protect his family. Full of smart twists and turns, this suspenseful pulp action flick follows the trio’s deadly chase through an increasingly intricate web of police corruption, vigilantism, and violence that will keep you rooted to your seat, all of the way through to its shocking conclusion.
