The Standoff at Sparrow Creek
A neighbourhood militia discovers that a mass shooting was carried out by one of its members in writer-director Henry Dunham's feature debut, which stars Iron Man 3's James Badge Dale.
"In the aftermath of a mass shooting, seven members of a militia ... arrive at a disturbing discovery: their armoury is short an AR-15 rifle, the same model reportedly used in the attack. Fearing that the authorities have already connected the weapon to their collective and will soon descend, they resolve to determine who among them has broken ranks, so that they can deliver the perpetrator to the police and not risk jeopardising their operation. Leading the investigation is Gannon (Dale), an ex-cop invited into the group as a safeguard against undercover police infiltration. As he conducts a series of interrogations throughout the night, a palpable malaise begins percolating. Tensions further escalate when the crew begin receiving enigmatic messages from neighbouring militia chapters insinuating that a more extensive and ominous plot is afoot."
