Plot – Spoilers:
A little girl wearing red ridinghood shoes goes missing. The cops have a suspect, but their big bad wolf is a meek teacher of religious studies at a local school. A video of him being roughed up by the cops goes viral, forcing his early release.
The main detective in charge of the case is convinced about the teacher’s guilt. And when he’s suspended from the case, he decides to take the extreme step of kidnapping the teacher and scaring the truth out of him. Meanwhile, the little girl turns up decapitated in the woods and now has someone more invested in her case – her father who intends to go further than the cop in getting to the truth.
If you’re looking for well-done torture, Big Bad Wolves could be your pitstop.
