Fresh off the film's premier at the 2014 New Orleans Film Festival where it won the Jury Prize!

Night. September 8th, 1935. Bullets ricochet through the marble corridors of the Louisiana State Capitol. When the shooting stops, two men have been fatally wounded. The first: populist U.S. Senator Huey Long, one of the most colorful, contentious figures in American history. The second: Dr. Carl Weiss, a respected surgeon with a young wife and 3-month-old baby at home. Riddled with 60 bullets, Weiss is proclaimed Huey's assassin by the Long machine. But, without physical evidence or a clear motive, the Weiss family doubts his guilt. 75 years later, in a search for closure, Weiss's son and his family delve into a painful past to question the official story.
