The unsavory underbelly of a small town in Northern California is exposed in this 2016 crime drama. Osman (Dominic Rains) has secured asylum in the U.S. after a hazardous stint of working with Western journalists in Afghanistan, but when his friend Lindsay (James Franco) is implicated in a local murder, he finds that life in the bucolic redwood country is not as safe as it first seemed. A colorful ensemble cast, including a wealthy New Age guru and the fearsome mafia family Sokurov Brothers, round out this tale of intrigue and misadventure. Also starring Academy Award-winner Melissa Leo. Colorado Premiere. (USA, 2016)
