A deaf girl is brutalized by a murderous gang who are then hunted by her when the bloodthirsty spirit of an Apache warrior inhabits her lifeless body.

Uncle John

Dutch, a small town bully turned born again Christian, has gone missing. John, a loved member of the community, is not a suspect, but has everything to do with it. Rumors about Dutch’s fate are hot topics around town. Dutch’s younger brother, Danny, who shares the family’s bad rap, has his own theory about the mystery and it centers on John.

Meanwhile, John’s nephew, Ben, leads a life replete with snarky jokes and gourmet coffee as a Chicago graphic designer. His confused and budding relationship with his coworker, Kate, leads them on an impromptu trip north to see the town he grew up in.

They arrive just as John struggles to navigate the increasing threats from Danny’s suspicions. [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW Film Festival]
