    • Synopsis
    • The residents of the small French-Canadian town of Villemauvais have a saying:nothing stays pure in Bad Town. In fifteen years Daniel hasn't once set foot in that place he previously called home. The painfully cautious English teacher still bears the childhood scars of his abusive father's violent suicide. But when Molly, the teenage daughter Daniel left behind, vanishes - along with her school firend - he is forced to revisit a past from which he thought he'd escaped.
      He finds a place more dissolute and malignant than in his darkest memories, a town where his daughter's disappearance raises little concern and the cops are hardly discernible from the crooks. When Molly's friend is found beaten and sexually-assaulted, the hunt for Molly becomes increasingly frantic.
      A stark note from her captors warns Daniel that he will pay for his crimes. While investigating his daughter's abduction and trying to ascertain the meaning of the note, he is slowly consumed of Bad Town's corruption.
      With no one he can trust, Daniel must uncover the truth about Bad Town and atone for his own dark sins to stands any chance of escape from the purgatory of Villemauvais.
      In a terrifying confrontation, Daniel makes a final terrible discovery about his tormentors - while Bad Town learns the terrible truth about Daniel.
