Following his daughter, Jessie’s death, which Tim feels was murder, he is plagued by terrible and persistent nightmares that are ruining his life.
When confronted by a strange apparition one night, Tim is unsure if he is delusional or merely suffering from another migraine headache. When the ‘apparition’ demonstrates irrefutable physical evidence, Tim is forced to accept the veracity of his visitor.
He is promised his life and his daughter back if he agrees to perform a simple and ancient task; Lex talionis – an eye-for-an-eye.
Tim willingly agrees until he realizes the magnitude of what he has agreed to do. Now in a quandary and ridden with guilt, Tim must decide if he is able to comply with what he has agreed to do.
Feeling despondent when he realizes that he may be unable to perform his allotted task, Tim devises a simpler plan that he knows will satisfy all aspects of the ‘agreement’ and ultimately reunite him with his daughter.
“Lex Talionis” is a classic eye-for-an-eye thriller with a devious twist that demonstrates just how far we are prepared to go for our families.
