    • Synopsis
    • Reparation is a powerful new suspense thriller that delves deeply into how a family copes with the past, what really defines human bonds, and the common struggle to find balance.
      The story swirls like a funnel cloud around Bob Stevens, a small-town, Indiana farmer with a three-year hole in his memory. When a mysterious stranger claims to have been his best friend in the Air Force Police, Bob's peaceful existence begins to unravel from the outside in. His entire family is caught in the storm, but none more than his eight year-old daughter who discovers that she has inherited her father’s missing years... stowaways on her DNA.
      As Charlotte comes to learn, “balance is everything.” That universal theme of balance is the soul of Reparation, a timely film that illuminates the issue of veterans living with post-traumatic stress in a thrilling new way.
