Someone’s Making A Killing In The Art World.

Jonathan Dunbar (Rossovich) is a handsome, talented, yet undiscovered young sculptor. Marion Winston (Kirkland) is the gallery owner who has signed him to exclusive representation. But she wants more than Jonathan’s art. Marion’s obsession with her “discovery” becomes smothering, stifling and ultimately deadly. From the moment they met, it was murder. Jonathan is now the prime suspect. But did Jonathan do it? You’ll see he had every reason to… but did he? Find out as an intense and chilling adventure unfolds until the broiling “cliff hanging” grand finale.
