Synopsis

A cop suspects a wealthy lawyer of raping and killing two 12-year-old girls. During a routine interrogation, the lawyer’s story of his innocent discovery of a dead girl’s body begins to unravel. And when it is discovered that he was also in the vicinity of the first girl’s murder, the cop begins to believe that the murderer is sitting right across from him.

Dove Review

Outstanding performances highlight this cat-and-mouse drama, but the subject matter of an older man pursuing preteen girls (and possibly murdering them) is rather repulsive.
