Uninvestigated. Unsolved. Unpunished. Until now.
Steve Tally and Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts star in Deadline, the story of the murder of an African American youth in rural Alabama that has gone un-investigated, unsolved, and unpunished for almost twenty years. But that changes when Nashville Times reporter Matt Harper meets an idealistic young blueblood bent on discovering the truth. Harper undertakes the investigation despite the opposition of his publisher, violent threats from mysterious forces, a break up with his finance, and his father's cancer diagnosis. Deadline is a story of murder, family, and of redemption for a small southern town and for Matt Harper.
