Minotaur is an action thriller about a Gulf War veteran who is the town hero. But because she never saw combat, she feels deeply undeserving whenever she is called a hero.

When an old friend asks her to search the woods for her son, who went missing years ago, our hero sees this as her chance to finally do something she feels will earn some valour.

But once she’s in the wilderness, our hero learns she’s being hunted by a soldier who believes he’s still in Vietnam.

And he’s wearing the missing kid’s watch.

What follows is Deliverance meets The Deer Hunter.
