    Film summary:

    When a community in Salt Lake City UT is turned upside down from the disappearance of a high school girl named Theo in the midst of her father's political campaign, an exploration into the different accounts of what went on reveals a much deeper story. Theo's bloody belongings are discovered in the mountains next to a creek with a suicide note, but her body is nowhere to be found. It is up to Detective Stanley and Detective Hobbs to unravel the mystery, and it becomes apparent that Theo had come out as gay just weeks before she vanished. With each clue found, more questions arise, and the detectives begin to suspect that not everything is what it appears to be. What happens when a family unravels due to societal pressure and lack of communication and compassion? What happened to Theo Doran?
