He has a new chance at a new life, but is it worth the cost?

Ryan is not unlike millions of people – fresh out of college, a dead-end job, and an endless search for meaning in his life. Offered a new start via a self-help group, simply known as The Center, and their highly charismatic leader Vincent, Ryan soon finds himself enmeshed in a world that seemingly offers him hope. But, there is a dark side to everything, and The Center has many secrets. Executive produced by Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs), director/writer Charlie Griak’s debut feature paints a fascinating and tense portrait of desperation and those that prey upon it. Haunting and stunningly beautiful, it’s sure to be one of the most talked about films this year. - Michael Rabehl
