Ever the friend, Todd helped Cam cover up an indiscretion that would haunt them both and finally split them apart. That was five years ago.
Tonight, Todd has shown up out of the past, dragging husband and father-to-be Cam out of his house in the dead of night with a phone call for help. Todd has a body in his trunk and is calling in their debt of friendship. Now Cam must choose: does he risk Todd outing their dark secret, or does he add another to his conscience by helping Todd in his own gruesome cover-up? Nothing is what it seems in this dark character thriller.13 minutes
