More and more indie filmmakers are turning to self-distribution as the means to get their product out. Case in point: writer/director Jason Horton’s Trap, which he’s releasing himself via sites like Amazon and CreateSpace.
Walter, a middle-aged ex-con fresh out of jail, has been consumed by guilt over leaving his family behind when he went to prison. Out now, he tries to re-establish a relation with his only living relative, his meth-additcted daughter Tori. Tori wants nothing to do with Walter and to get rid of him hooks him up with a kidnapping scheme, headlined by the volatile Franklin. Franklin appears nervous and unstable, but there’s more than meets the eye there.
Franklin and Walter take delivery of Tennessee, the 15-year-old kidnappee, and hold her until the ransom is paid. This plan goes to hell when Walter falls in love with Tennessee. Does she love him as well, or is she just using him to escape Franklin?
A story of isolation, loneliness, loyalty, and violence, Trap reveals the darker side of human nature.
DVD extras include a behind-the-scenes featurette and director commentary.
