B. K. BERRELL/BRIAN M. WELLS

Logline

Living on the fringes of contemporary american society a reclusive combat veteran and a former prize fighter, turned outlaw biker, find themselves unwittingly ensnared in a federal investigation. As ghosts from their separate and sordid pasts emerge and are examined, they are drawn, increasingly closer, towards the outlier of an intricate conspiracy with global ramifications. Uncomfortably current, darkly spiritual, socially unacceptable, and eerily familiar, a tightening noose will leave you scared, scarred, and speculating on what is fact, what is fiction, and what is next.
