Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Harris Done co-writes and directs Purgatory Flats, a low-level actioner about Thomas Reed (Vincent Ventresca), a California physician thrown into the slammer after offing his wife in a drunk driving accident. Upon release, Reed high-tails it to a small town where he finds trouble yet again, this time at the hands of the saucy Sunny Burkhardt (Alexandra Holden), a young woman distantly involved with the extraordinarily dysfunctional and violent Mecklin family, including the hotheaded, bullet-thirsty Owen (Kevin Alejandro). A conflict soon erupts between the two men. Purgatory Flats features supporting performances by Pat Corley, (Murphy Brown) and Nicholas Turturro (NYPD Blue).
