Synopsis

The answer lies within.

Neal Kumar seems to have everything: a beautiful family, a large home and an extremely successful career in Silicon Valley. When his youngest daughter tragically commits suicide during her freshman year of college, no one seems to know why. But Neal is determined to learn the truth. Traveling across California to investigate, Neal’s seemingly idyllic life begins to unravel.
