Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A mechanic from a rural mountain village finds the limits of his family loyalties tested when his entrepreneur brother announces plans to revitalize the community through a hotel project that becomes increasingly overshadowed by greed and dangerous secrets.
Roy has never left the quiet mountain town he grew up in; his little brother Carl couldn't wait to get out and escape his troubled past. When Carl returns with a new wife and a business opportunity that seems too good to be true, simmering tensions begin to surface. Soon powerful players set their sights on taking the brothers down by exposing their role in the town's sordid history. Roy and Carl are survivors, and no strangers to violence. But as the body count rises, Roy's loyalty to family is tested. And then Roy finds himself drawn to Carl's wife, Shannon, there will be devastating consequences. -- adapted from jacket.
