Synopsis by Augustine Chay
Director/co-writer Scott Teems’ mystery thriller is an adaptation of Damon Galgut’s 1995 novel of the same name.

After killing a traveling preacher, he poses as his victim and endears himself to the local community with his sermons. The local police chief, however, suspects that something is amiss.
