Blood On Her Name

The dead body lies at her feet, its blood still draining onto the floor. It was an accident, borne of self defense, but its discovery could have devastating consequences for local garage owner Leigh Tiller (Bethany Anne Lind) and her son (Jared Ivers). In a panic, Leigh decides to conceal the crime, cleaning the bloody scene and scrambling to dispose of the body. But can she actually disappear a man from the earth— from his family— leaving them forever wondering? As Leigh is torn between her primal instincts and tortured conscience she struggles to keep her sins hidden from her estranged father -- a cop with a long history of moral compromise (Will Patton) -- and from the keen-eyed girlfriend of the deceased (Elisabeth Röhm).

“A Masterclass in Neo-Noir…. There's something so moving and powerful about the authenticity and fear that emanates from this film; it's like watching your worst case scenario play out in front of you…. Easily one of the most interesting and best crafted films of the year.”
