CONTRADICTION written and directed by Andy Fox-Hutchings

09/02/23CONTRADICTION  written and directed by Andy Fox-Hutchings

A dastardly murder at a private affair brings two detectives into a world of lies, misdirection and confusion as they question six suspects each with a dark motive and an agenda of their own.  They then compare the contrasting accounts of how the night unfolded in order to determine who in the group is the guilty party.

 

Each suspect gets an opportunity to narrate the events that transpired, but as the contradictions in their testimonies start to pile up, it’ll take a master sleuth to cut through the deceptions and find the truth at the heart of it all.
