Law student and all round good guy Harper (Tye Sheridan) suspects his stepdad Vincent (Stephen Moyer) of causing the car crash that landed his mother in a coma. Drowning his sorrows in a seedy LA whisky bar Harper ends up drinking with Johnny Ray (Emory Cohen), a tough redneck who offers to 'take care' of Vincent for a cool $20,000. Fuelled by alcohol, Harper agrees a deal. Awaking with the mother of all hangovers and hazy memories of his encounter, Harper is surprised to have Johnny Ray turn up at his door, with his beautiful but distant girlfriend Cherry (Bel Powley) in tow, ready for a road trip to Vegas to kill Vincent. In the cold light of day, Johnny Ray is more threatening and he won't take no for an answer when Harper protests that it was the whisky talking. Realizing that his own survival depends on going along with the plan, Harper hits the road to Vegas with his unlikely companions. What follows is a tense, deftly constructed noir thriller where Harper's story takes an unexpected detour, presenting the audience with two alternate versions of events with two very different outcomes.

    Having been named one of Variety's 10 Actors to Watch, Tye Sheridan has emerged as one of Hollywood's most sought after young talents. Most recently, he was seen in Bryan Singer's highly anticipated film X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), release on May 27, 2016. He starred as young Cyclops alongside a star studded cast including Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac and Olivia Munn. He will also be seen as the lead in the psychological thriller Detour (2016), opposite Emory Cohen and Bel Powley, which was acquired by Magnet Releasing shortly after the film premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. Tye Kayle Sheridan was born in Elkhart, Texas, to Stephanie (Wright), a beauty salon owner, and Bryan Sheridan, a UPS employee. Tye had almost no acting experience when he was cast in a breakthrough role for Terrence Malick's movie The Tree of Life (2011) opposite Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain. The film won the 2011 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the 2011 Gotham Award for Best Picture, in addition to three Academy Award nominations. He was also featured in IndieWire's "Top 25 Filmmakers and Actors" of 2011. Sheridan won the 2013 Marcello Mastroianni Award at the Venice Film Festival for his captivating performance in the Southern drama Joe (2013) opposite Nicolas Cage. That same year, he was recognized by numerous film critics for his starring role in Jeff Nichol's coming-of-age drama Mud (2012) opposite Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon. He received a 2014 Critics' Choice nomination for Best Young Actor and the cast was honored with the 2014 Robert Altman Award at the Independent Spirit Awards. He had three films at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival: The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015), based on a shocking real-life psychological experiment; Rodrigo Garcia's Last Days in the Desert (2015) co-starring Ewan McGregor and the indie drama Entertainment (2015) starring alongside Michael Cera and John C. Reilly. These riveting performances were followed by a starring role opposite John Travolta in the crime thriller The Forger, Paramount's horror comedy Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015), in addition to Gilles Paquet-Brenner's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's mystery novel Dark Places (2015) alongside Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Nicholas Hoult.
