David Mackay directed this drama about the secrets of four friends. Missouri lumberman Derek (Colm Feore) reunites his high school pals -- lawyer George (David Paymer), priest Ivan (Arliss Howard), and police officer Frank (Tony Goldwyn) -- who were all involved in past violent deaths and cover-ups. The film double-tracks their stories as it intercuts between past and present. Shown in 1998 at the Austin Film Festival, the Houston Film Festival and the AFI Film Festival.
