Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
The sophomore effort from writer/director Joe Brewster, this psychological drama centers on Malcolm (Isaach de Bankolé), a man who sees his entire reality torn apart when his father is suddenly murdered. In the aftermath of the killing, Malcolm reflects for the first time on his life which began in poverty in Nigeria before he was adopted and brought to the United States. For his performance in The Killing Zone, de Bankolé was given the Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2003 New York VisionFest.
