The Speed of Darkness
Hollywood, CA , 90038
Joe is a decorated hero of the Vietnam war and owns a prosperous construction business in South Dakota. When he nominated as man of the year by his town, he is faced with an unwelcome amount of attention which begins to challenge his ability to walk the tenuous line of normality on which he has come to live.
Emotionally numbed by the fallout of war and with rumblings about family scars, Joe's home life faces upheaval with the sudden appearance of an old war buddy, Lou. The presence of his mysterious and mentally disturbed friend puts Joe and his family on edge as whispers of past misdeeds begin to unravel all which he has worked to build.
