Plot – Spoilers:
Eli, out on parole, moves into a small neighborhood and helps out at his brother’s hardware store. But when the townsfolk realize he’s an ex-rapist, they aren’t sure if he’s capable of staying clean.
A TV movie by Lamont Johnson that’s thematically similar to The Woodsman. While not as good, the topic should perhaps be of interest – does a sex offender deserve a chance at rehabilitation, and if given the chance, what are the odds?
