Single father Tom Hawkins’ son is abducted and murdered. When informed by the FBI, led by agent Mike Sheehy, that the homicide appears to be part of a string of crimes carried out by an enigmatic sect, Hawkins inappropriately inserts himself into the investigation and embarks on a cunning path of revenge. Tom reaches deep into his religious beliefs for guidance but once the improbable killer is revealed, the aftermath can only be sorted out by God.

Per Theater Chart: Grand Still the Grandest of Them All

Enemy was right behind with an estimated $18,000 in its lone theater. Le Week-End was the final film in the $10,000 club as it earned an average of $14,536 in three theaters during its opening weekend of release. More...
