«It’s the perfect space» – The Wrap

THE HEADLANDS follows an amateur sleuth and true crime aficionado who sets out to solve the ultimate case: the unsolved murder of his father. Using his memories and the family stories he was told as a child growing up in San Francisco, he begins an investigation through a labyrinth of secrets and deceptions that leads him to question those closest to him. THE HEADLANDS is a contemporary noir that explores the stories we tell ourselves and the fallibility of the mind.
