Beneath the surface the truth lies
In the tradition of IDENTITY and TWIN PEAKS, DEEPWATER is a riveting thriller set in a twisted world where nothing is as it seems.
Hot new star Lucas Black (The Fast & the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Friday Night Lights, Jarhead) is Nat Banyon, a young man looking for a change who finds himself in the town of Deepwater. Taking a job at the local motel owned by the corrupt and powerful Finch (Peter Coyote - TV’s “Commander In Chief”, Femme Fatale), he is soon in over his head when Finch’s much younger wife Iris (Mia Maestro – Poseidon, The Motorcycle Diaries) seduces him and asks him to help her steal a fortune in money which has been scammed by Finch - money which only he will miss. With a seemingly perfect plan, Nat and Iris enter a world they know little about and even less of how to survive in it. Finch however is a master and when two bodies appear in the lake, one of whom is the town sheriff, the trail of clues lead to the motel and a truth more incredible than Nat could ever imagine.
