37th Annual VIRGINIA FILM FESTIVAL October 30-November 3, 2024



After serving a grueling prison sentence, young ex-con Dovey (Darren Mann) savors the taste of freedom he’s dreamt of since his incarceration began. However, his second chance at life grows complicated when fellow inmate Ray (Dermot Mulroney) asks him to track down his estranged daughter, Eve. The search requires Dovey to cross state lines to the Outer Banks, and thus, violate his parole.

When Dovey meets Eve, the pair find potential for romance, but Eve has a past of her own. Director James Rowe delivers a tense and fast-paced thriller that explores crime, family ties, and second chances.

Discussion with writer and director James Rowe and producer Matt Paul. Moderated by David Phillips (Awards Daily).
