[Points to himself with both thumbs] This guy!
Dormer: You shouldn't knock misdemeanors.
Det. Ellie Burr: Oh, but it's small stuff. It gets so boring.
Dormer: It's all about small stuff. You know, small lies, small mistakes. People give themselves away, same in misdemeanors as they do on murder cases. It's just human nature. Aren't you gonna write that down?

It would be easy for overlook this film because it's so quiet. A heinous crime in a sleepy little town in the middle of nowhere. Who cares? But inside this story lies the path to evil. One small gesture, leads to a small crime that suddenly leads to murder. How did we get here? What happened? How did this happen? Detective Dormer is called in to small town Alaska to solve the crime in a town so small that everybody knows everyone. Some things go wrong and now Dormer is on the defensive and the killer is stalking him.
Inside this story is the path to hell. Small things, bigger things, really large things and now murder may be your only way out. These people never saw this coming. And these are damaged people. They all have a dark back-story and they all pretend at civility but there's a reason they're living in that small town. They have secrets.
This is a psychological thriller that while well written is quite deliberate in its pace. The beauty of the Alaskan countryside is breathtaking but never forget that this is a rugged land filled with predators.
