Storyline

He has a new chance at a new life, but is it worth the cost? Ryan is not unlike millions of people - fresh out of college, a dead-end job, and an endless search for meaning in his life. Offered a new start via a self-help group, simply known as The Center, and their highly charismatic leader Vincent, Ryan soon finds himself enmeshed in a world that seemingly offers him hope. But, there is a dark side to everything, and The Center has many secrets. Charlie Griak's debut feature paints a fascinating and tense portrait of desperation and those that prey upon it. Written by Michael Rabehl,Director of Programming Cinequest Film Festival

Buyer beware, even with Amazon.
4 October 2018 | by ronflowersSee all my reviews

This is the second time I assumed because Amazon was streaming a movie you could trust the rating and that it was worthy of attention. But I'm learning the hard way to check the total number of ratings, and when it is low, like between 20 to 50, check out the internal spread. Apparently they do not go to that trouble. As in this example, you'll often find that half the ratings are spread out between 1 and 7 or 8, and then oddly, the other 40 to 50% are all 10's. I'm disappointed in Amazon streaming. I'm learning to stay with stay with Netflix
