Tony Jakubiak is careening through life as a hip, black sheep under-achiever. The polar opposite of his square, over-achieving D.A. older brother Frank, who is on his way to becoming the youngest governor in history. Then, one night, Tony is arrested for the brutal murder of a priest. A murder he didn't commit. Big brother Frank comes to his rescue, but Tony won't reveal his alibi for where he was at the time of the murder. As the trial gets closer, and life imprisonment becomes a possibility, Frank discovers where Tony was and with whom. Frank now has the alibi and evidence to set his brother free.

Critic Reviews for The Fall
An unconvincing if not exactly unwatchable tale of two polar-opposite brothers.
With The Fall, writer-director John Krueger buries a promising neo-noir plot with ponderous pacing and uneven performances and dialogue.
The Fall is really just a dull, poorly acted courtroom drama with glossy, autumnal cinematography and an implausible twist.
The Fall features a mostly-talented cast doing good work and surprisingly striking visuals given the film's budget, but it fails to weave any particularly intriguing twists from dark secrets past and present and rushes towards an abrupt conclusion.
