Script File


Two upstanding brothers return to their lazy home town of Augsburg Tennessee, after being notified that their younger brother, David, has committed suicide. Upon their arrival, suspicions rise, when the local funeral director suggest that
David's death was no suicide, but in fact murder.
After getting nowhere with the local sheriff, the two brothers decide to do their own investigating, only to find that their brother's death is being covered up by the local sheriff, who is involved in kickbacks for his part of the cover up scheme, thus forcing the two brothers and their friends, to take matters into their own hands.
With the help of the sheriff's stepson, the Fitzpatrick boys, methodically plan and orchestrates the hennas killings of those suspected of killing their brother--while all along, the true killer diverts all suspicion away from himself, and ultimately gets away with murder.
