Check out an extended synopsis of the film along with the trailer, an exclusive clip, the film's poster, and some other stuff we've shamelessly stolen from the press release below.
"Sarah Walsh is a struggling actress who recently moved back home to care for her terminally ill father. To make ends meet she works as a caterer and, as the film opens, is left to tend to the post-funeral gathering for Hank Boyd, a quiet loner who stood accused of a horrific crime and took his own life before standing trial.
Sarah knew Hank in high school and doesn’t believe that he could do something so terrible. Her suspicions grow stronger after she meets Hank’s brother David, a local cop with a checkered past, his dimwitted partner Ray who’s charged with guarding the house, David’s mother Beverly who’s in the early stages of dementia, and Aubrey, his distant and obviously damaged younger sister.
Sarah’s suspicions turn to alarm when she overhears a dubious conversation between David and Ray and learns they were involved in Hank’s death and may have plans for her as well. Meanwhile Beverly has become convinced that Sarah is her long lost daughter while Aubrey pines for the affections of her big brother …when she’s not trying to ruin him.
As the family’s dark secrets are exposed and the bodies pile up, Sarah must give the performance of a lifetime if she hopes to survive, and all because…Hank Boyd Is Dead."
