If you're ever out driving and come across a sign welcoming you to Sparwood, stop and turn back. It is one sick little city. An evil bully harasses everybody in this town until they can't take it anymore and one upstanding citizen shoots him six times in the back. There are lots of witnesses, but they're all so glad to be rid of the bully that they shun the prosecutor (Bruce Boxleitner) as he tries to bring the killer to trial. I don't see the point. It's just a movie about aberrant behavior with no apparent moral or message.
