Journalist, JACK COHEN, is young, deceptively charming, and hungry for the big story that will change his career. His current underwhelming assignment lands him in a sleepy Midwestern mining town where no one talks to strangers – especially reporters. When his last hope, EMMA ELLIS, an eccentrically mysterious local offers to help, Jack must, in exchange, give her writing lessons - a deal he begrudgingly accepts. Jack soon discovers that Emma’s parents and three best friends were murdered in a tragic shooting ten years prior, and is witness to the very particular way in which she deals with this trauma. He sees the game-changing article he has been waiting for right in front of him. Leveraging Emma’s trust, Jack duplicitously extracts the story, exploiting Emma’s tragedy for his own gain. Emma’s instability, threats from her military veteran brother CHAMP ELLIS, and Jack’s own ambitious treachery send him hurtling toward an explosive conclusion.
