Frederick James Koch plays the compelling part of an investigative journalist who is also the best friend of Frank played by Sean Stone, son of multi- Academy award winner Oliver Stone.

Hunted and pursued with a price on his head, Frederick James Koch’s character is finally killed when he is forced off a cliff in his vehicle on Mulholland Drive leaving Frank to take on his accusers alone while in Jail.

The official ‘Lionsgate’ released trailer is currently on youtube and other social media platforms. Attention to detail by director Aziz Tazi on a story written by him much in keeping with the issues of the heart in a world of religious suspicion and persecution makes compelling viewing with a strong supporting international cast.
