Gensan (David Dastmalchian) and Ruby (Karen Gillan) live on the fringes of society in Los Angeles, struggling to survive in the face of abject poverty. On a fateful night, they strike out to seize something that has always been denied them, which sets in motion a series of events with dire consequences. Their impulsively committed crime puts them on run from the police. They seek refuge in their hometown of Kansas City, a place filled with the dark secrets that have haunted them since they fled years ago.

  • By the end, you're left with the scripted dramatic feature equivalent of a local TV news story that fills you with despair for the human race.

  • The story takes some unbelievably tragic twists and turns, and along the way, Dastmalchian unfolds a riveting performance, aided by Schiffli's beautiful and unobtrusive style.

    May 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Schiffli directs with a nice balance between momentum and naturalism. Yet the creditable handling can't quite mask material that feels inorganically rooted in secondhand dramatic clichés.

  • Schiffli and his players find a core of humanity there that holds us even as Ruby and Gensan's situation becomes increasingly more dire.

  • There's an air of danger to the proceedings, but it's laced with compassion and the desire to set things straight...
