Together they hunted and brought to justice a dangerous serial killer. Now all they have to do is survive the trial.

Elvis Allende is a retired criminal psychologist. A profiler who is good at what he does. Jackson Womack is a detective with the Special Crimes Unit who has seen better days on the job. And Russell Greyeagle is the Assistant District Attorney who supervised the hunt and ultimate capture of the serial killer known as the Night Ripper. As the Night Ripper trial begins, all three men find themselves unraveling within new dynamics of their lives since the Night Ripper's apprehension years earlier. Allende is slowly sinking into the landscape of madness he's been desperate to avoid ever since the murder of a loved one. Womack works a desk until he can resolve his post-traumatic issues borne from the violence and insanity he confronts on a daily basis. And Greyeagle is tasked to do something he has never done in the courtroom before: To seek the death penalty. Or in his mind "premeditated murder". It is a collision of chaos and time shifts, from past to present, as all three men are brought together post-trial to bring some sense of peace and balance into their respective lives.

It has been an off and on struggle getting my work noticed by the right filmmakers, but I remain dedicated to my talent knowing that it is about being ready at the right place and at the...
