Overview & Credits

Screenplay OVERVIEW

Heartstone places Detective Roy Shepherd, a street smart, married to the job cop, right in the center of one of the most shocking crimes in the history of Portland, Oregon. Driven by the memory of the unsolved murder of a rookie cop, his younger brother, Shepherd develops a maniacal obsession with the case. He pursues every lead, every scrap of evidence, every possible witness to the crime, that leaves two privileged young lives cut short. The crime goes unsolved for a decade until Willie Heartstone, a two bit street punk psychopath, offers up a death bed confession. A dying wretch’s confession that opens doors for the truth to make itself known…unanticipated, twisted, sick truth.
