Writer-director Kat Chandler's film is set in a small small refinery town in Southeast Texas. A family broken up by the death of its mother is spinning out of control. Hollis Wilson (Aaron Paul) can't control his teenage son and keep his own shit together now that the boy's mother has passed. The boy grows more destructive and devil-may-care.
Inspired by a previous short of Chandler's, Hellion will compete at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and analysts say that it should be one of the festival's brightest. —Ross Scarano
