Isaac, a prisoner released on compassionate furlough, returns to his home in a remote farming community – a place steeped in folklore and superstition.

He is there for his daughter Autumn’s twelfth birthday, and unless a kidney donor can be found, it will be her last. As the Harvest Moon rises, Isaac must make a terrible choice that could offer redemption for a crime that robbed Autumn of a mother and father. One way or another, blood will flow and a sacrifice must be made.

The Australian premiere of Rob Drummond’s folk-noir thriller dares the audience to answer the question “what would you do to save the person you love?” - and do the ends ever justify the means?
