The Road to Empire (2008)

Sobre o filme

Charlie runs a successful aviation company, but some of his success has come from turning a blind eye to cargo that may or may not be legal. When a regular client offers him a deal – no questions asked – Charlie thinks it will be his biggest score yet. Charlie will soon learn that this deal will have consequences that go beyond anything he could have imagined. From writer/director Michael Sibay comes The Road To Empire, an edge-of-your-seat mystery, which reminds us that sometimes those who are supposed to protect us can be the ones most dangerous in our lives. This thriller follows newlyweds Charlie and Katherine as they go on a road trip from Houston, Texas to a little town in northern California called Empire, ostensibly, and as far as Katherine knows, to visit Charlie’s father who maintains a farm up there. Charlie, however, has set up this cover story to conceal illegal business activities that are the real reason for the trip. As the trip gradually turns perilous, Katherine begins to suspect her husband and demands the truth. But Charlie refuses to be forthright and instead tells her one lie after another to keep her in the dark. She finally decides to uncover the truth on her own, and what she finds out proves to be of far-reaching consequences.
