After years spent as a drifter struggling to control his demons, Alex returns home to discover that his childhood abuser, the cause of his pain, is still alive. Armed with this knowledge, Alex plots his revenge while navigating the landscape of modern-day small-town America, fraught with danger and desperation.
According to writer-director Travis Mathews, this complex examination of masculine fragility “began as a moody cautionary tale” about the hatred of the Other in our current political climate, where “men, whether straight or gay…are terrified of being emasculated…The monster built from years of fear-mongering [is] no longer under anyone’s control.”
