Tagline: Sometimes a leap of faith can be deadly.
Plot: Martha Plimpton gives a strong performance as an Oklahoma diner waitress who weds the born-again prison inmate (Kevin Anderson) with whom she's been corresponding, but she soon finds that his ostensible piety masks a cruel, domineering nature that leads inevitably to horrific violence. This deeply affecting film, while examining the way in which death and grief send shockwaves across a small town, employs a complex narrative which shifts around across the frame of the story, involving the viewer in the process of putting together the pieces of this tragic and compelling puzzle. Hal Holbrook and Nick Stahl also turn in exceptional performances. Funded in part by the Sundance Institute.
