Haunted by an accident he caused ten years earlier, a damaged film director is forced to go back to the scene of the tragedy and confront the old friends whose lives he ruined and a town that disdains him.

Jumping between present-DAY and an independent film he made about the accident, we learn the true events played out far differently than in his movie.

 
A lot of these things in my movie didn’t happen. Or they didn’t happen the way I wrote them. But the feeling you have watching it, that’s real. So no, this isn’t a true story. But it’s truly how it felt.
— Tom Bell (Westhampton, pg 80)
