It's 11:50. At 12:00 a murder will take place. The whole 90 minutes of the film deal with those life-deciding 10 minutes, through the eyes and views of 10 characters that are somehow connected to this murder.

Starring Alfonso Freeman, Morgan Freeman's son, and winning a number of film festivals, Ten 'til Noon has been compared to Pulp Fiction and Memento in terms of Tarantino-like dialogue, in addition to the film's parallel-entwining storylines that peak with a final revealing twist that eventually explains all. Produced entirely on a shoestring budget, director Scott Storm, his amazingly solid cast, as well as the sharp story, editing, cinematography; all signal that this is a labor of love that has been made by classy talent which believed in the project, and to whom money was never a major concern.

The story starts in the bedroom of jet-lagged businessman Larry Taylor (Rick D. Wasserman), who wakes to find a smooth cat of a killer (Alfonso Freeman) sat across from him pointing a gun to his head, as the hit man's female assistant watches on. The killer informs our businessman that his wife is having an affair as the numbers on the clock count up to 12:00. Yet just as they reach noon, we are taken back to 11:50 to experience these final 10 minutes from some other character's standpoint- adding more layers to the story, and unveiling the motives of the 10 characters involved.

A must-see that will entertain with its well-thought out characters and its original build-up.
