Year 2019
Runtime 100 mins
Alberta Premiere

A young woman returns to her hometown of Niagara Falls and begins investigating a traumatic kidnapping she witnessed as a small child.

After the death of her mother, Abby (Tuppence Middleton) returns home to take over her mother's failing roadside motel. Soon after arriving she is reminded of a kidnapping she witnessed as a small girl, one she didn't tell anyone about. Clues start piling up when she meets Walter (David Cronenberg) who is well versed on missing persons and conspiracies of the area. As she pieces together information she begins to wonder if it really is a grand cover-up or if her childhood trauma is mixing up truth and fiction in her mind.

CIFF alumni Albert Shin (IN HER PLACE) writes and directs a taut, conspiracy-theory laden Canadian psychological thriller starring Tuppence Middleton (SENSE8, BLACK MIRROR) and CIFF alumni Canadian directorial legend David Cronenberg (MAPS TO THE STARS).
