Disgraced NYPD Detective, Jake Trilleau, returns to his hometown to grapple with his sister?s recent death. There he confronts the family he ran from years earlier. And, haunted by her wandering spirit, learns the sinister truth about his sister?s demise.
I want to see this one re-made in full-length format.
This is one of five films featured in the DVD collection "The Short Stack: Volume 5". I have enjoyed their other compilations and can recommend this one as well.
Wow, does this short film have a complex story! It has as much going on as an average full-length film--making me wonder what sort of tale could be spun with a larger budget and a longer running time. It begins with an undercover cop roughing up a suspect and getting caught. Immediately after, he's home and catches a glimpse of his sister--and moments later, he learns from a phone call that she is dead!! The cop returns to his childhood home--one from which he's obviously estranged. And, you slowly learn about what has transpired over the years--and a lot (and I do mean a LOT) happens in this 20 minute film.
Overall, while it's a bit rushed and the film isn't perfect, I really liked this film and hope the makers get more funding so they can do this right--it is a very good story.
