"A thrilling, drugged-out noir"
3 stars "All Mistakes proof that in movies, the strength of a tale usually lies in the telling"

Heartbroken, drug addicted and living in squalor, Sonny (Sam Trammell, True Blood) becomes obsessed with returning a necklace to his estranged wife for their anniversary, believing that its recovery will save his marriage. When the necklace is stolen by a gang of criminals led by a tough small-town madam named Franki, he risks his life as he navigates the seedy underbelly of his Louisiana town to get it back.

Sam Trammell gives an unforgettable performance in this powerful tale of lost love and self-destruction as All Mistakes Buried becomes a gritty and honest portrayal of a broken man, desperately seeking redemption.

Directed by Tim McCann, 2015, U.S.A., 84 mins.
