A vengeful, aggressive essence arisen from Wolf has led him to a death row prison sentence after conviction of murders. Absent of any remorse, his last days are spent isolated in daily tasks and locked in a cell. His only human interaction is limited to his sister, whose road has led her to work as a victim’s advocate. She spends her days helping everyone around her, including her brother and her mother. As Wolf and Sara become crossed within the plans of a sinister prison gang, their past ideals will be put to the ultimate test. As multiple lives hang in the balance, including their own, they must decide whether or not to make different choices in this gritty, challenging suspense thriller.
The film is slated to begin production in DeKalb next month.
