In this locally-made thriller, a teenage girl's life is turned upside down when her long-estranged mother returns to the family farm.

This debut feature by local filmmaker Sandi Somers follows Arielle (Sophia Lauchlin Hirt, OLYMPUS), a 16-year-old girl trying to live a quiet life in the countryside. Although she loves her devoted father John (Billy MacLellan, MAUDIE) and their life together on an isolated farm, she can't help but wonder what happened to Maria (Michelle Morgan, HEARTLAND), her mother who abandoned them 10 years prior. When Maria unexpectedly returns, everything that John told Arielle about their family comes into question. Soon, Arielle finds herself desperately trying to untangle her family's dark past, as secrets and deceptions pile up and tensions rise.

Shot against the sweeping backdrop of Alberta's foothills with a script by Calgarian Jason Long (CHOKESLAM), this tense psychological thriller explores what makes our family ties strong – and what makes them break.
