Set in the backwoods of Northern Minnesota’s Iron Range, a gripping tale of power, loss, and the ultimate price of the American Dream
A thriller from the Heartland, Sins of Our Fathers follows John White, aka J.W., who has just been caught stealing from his employer to support his gambling addiction. On the verge of losing everything, J.W. must choose between prison and his boss’s twisted plan: the sabotage of a competing, Native American banker named Johnny Eagle. But when J.W. moves onto the reservation to carry out this scheme, he forms an unexpected bond with Eagle's delinquent son, a relationship that gives him both the access to do Eagle in, and a reason not to proceed. A stunning debut from veteran screenwriter Shawn Lawrence Otto, Sins of Our Fathers "is a fine depiction of how all the best intentions canand dogo very, very wrong." (Urban Waite).
