Riveting, quiet, and desperate...

A riveting and violent film that centers the shot in the dark reality of many police cases, their lack of evidence and inherent insolvability and what that does to your spirit. Compelling, sad and suspenseful, you feel the killer close but like the wind you cannot catch it. A film that echoes it's desperation long after it's over.
