Wrightsville, Texas is a small border town where no one is a stranger.  So when one of its seemingly innocent residents is found dead at the local diner with a stomach full of rat poison, everyone becomes a suspect.  Charlie Dexton (James Oliver) serves as the sheriff for Wrightsville's otherwise non-existent police department, and subsequently leads the investigation.

The murder coincidentally coincides with the return of Charlie's estranged brother, Sam (Gil Bellows), who ran away with his sibling's fiancé a day before their wedding.  Could the two events be related?  Everyone eventually becomes a suspect in this Fargoesque indie thriller.
