Led to believe his abusive Grandfather is responsible for his twin sister’s recent death, GABRIEL (26) returns to his humble home next to a native American reservation in rural New Mexico. Yearning to protect his family he swears to secretly kill his Grandfather. Yet at the moment of truth his plan is ruined and they are forced to spend the day together.
