REPARATION is an independent motion picture about shot entirely in Putnam County, Indiana. It’s a psychological thriller that swirls like a funnel cloud around Bob Stevens — a small-town farmer with a three-year hole in his memory. When a stranger shows up claiming to be his best friend, Bob’s peaceful existence begins to unravel from the outside in. And his eight year-old daughter, Charlotte, is caught in the middle of the storm. Can she help her father restore his own memories before it’s too late?

Starring Jon Huertas (Castle, Generation Kill), Marc Menchaca (Homeland, Generation Kill), Virginia Newcomb (Union), and Keith Szarabajka (The Dark Knight, Argo).

And introducing Dale Dye Thomas, Brody Behr, and Adam Philpott.
Produced and directed by Kyle Ham. Based on the play by Steve Timm, with the screenplay written by Kyle & Steve.
