Downriver

The path to redemption is paved in sin.

James has served time for drowning a little boy when he was a child, although the body was never found in the river. A visit from his victim’s mother upon parole sends him on a quest to find the truth. With little time and danger at every turn, James risks his freedom and his life to uncover the trail of sins that might give closure to the grieving mother.

Downriver makes its World Premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
