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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The overwrought performances of the adult actors and the overall staginess of their section keeps this thriller from truly thrilling."
