Synopsis: A modern fable set against the rugged backdrop of a Pacific Northwest logging community, this is the story of Lillian, a young woman newly returned to her hometown who becomes the subject of harassment by a man named Blackway, an ex-cop turned violent crimelord who operates with impunity in this small community on the edge of the wilderness. Forsaken by the local townspeople, advised by the Sheriff to leave town, Lillian decides instead to take a stand against her sociopathic stalker, and enlists the help of an ex-logger Lester and his laconic young sidekick Nate-the only two men in town brave enough, or crazy enough, to go with her, and go up against Blackway.

brother, it's his uncle.

It's his brother,

I played pool with the guy.

He killed my cat.

He trashed my f***ing car.

I need someone to

help me... Talk to him?

I don't know, threaten him,

if that's what it takes.

The name's Blackway.

- You tell sheriff Windgate

about Blackway bothering you?

- He said there's

nothing he can do.

He said to come here,

and ask for Scotty.

He said Scotty would

know what to do.

- He'd

say, "get another cat."

- There you go.

- Or leave town.

- I am not leaving.

could live plenty of places.

Where were you before this?

- You know

where else is real nice?

- Portland.

- What is wrong with you people?

I grew up here.

This property's all I got, and

I put a lot of work into it.

I will be damned if some a**hole

is gonna run me out of town.

So I will ask you one more time.

How do I find Scotty?

- I'm sorry, miss, Scotty's

not here, and I can't help you.

- Pathetic.

- F***!

Ugh, damn it!

- Anybody wants

to go with her, I'll pay ya

a week's wages and cover

your funeral expenses.

- Yeah, I'll do it.

I'll go with her.

- What's that, Les?
