Synopsis

Dutch, a small town bully turned born again Christian, has gone missing. John (John Ashton), a loved member of the community, is not a suspect, but has everything to do with it. Rumors about Dutch’s fate are hot topics around town. Dutch’s younger brother, Danny (Ronnie Gene Blevins), who shares the family’s bad rap, has his own theory about the mystery and it centers on John. Meanwhile, John’s nephew, Ben (Alex Moffat), leads a life replete with snarky jokes and gourmet coffee as a Chicago graphic designer. His confused and budding relationship with his coworker, Kate (Jenna Lyng), leads them on an impromptu trip north to see the town he grew up in. They arrive just as John struggles to navigate the increasing threats from Danny’s suspicions.
