After discovering the news that his Mother has taken her own life, Saxon Gamble returns home, irrationally plagued by the notion that her death was not a suicide, and that his older brother Dean was involved. Saxon, a man of violence and ill repute, embarks on a revenge mission that shakes up the quiet town of his birth. Obsessed and angry, Saxon disregards any truth or logic to create a murder mystery for himself to solve, hoping to get to something that might look like the truth. It also awakens a dormant sibling rivalry that puts himself and his brother (Dean) on a collision course that leads to severe and bloody consequences. Dean, a successful businessman, dismisses Saxon as insane, and is content basking in the glory of being ‘the savior’, that rescued their dying town from economic ruin. Caught in the middle is their Father (Leonard), now a Minister, the return of his prodigal son Saxon sends him on a crisis of conscience. While he begins to examine his checkered past and lack the courage of his newly found convictions, his sons remain locked in a battle for his approval and affection. Seemingly envious of his brother’s eternal success, Saxon’s violent and cynical nature is often at war with his basic sense of decency and justice, and he finds himself fighting an uphill battle to convince people of his far-fetched theory of murder and foul play. Alienated and alone, Saxon’s history of mental illness and trouble with the law catch up to him, leaving us to choose between the questions: ‘Will Saxon find the killer?’ or ‘Was there a killer at all?
