THE RETURN is the new supernatural thriller starring Sarah Michelle Gellar (THE GRUDGE, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER TV series) as Joanna Mills, a tough young Midwesterner from Oklahoma, who is determined to learn the truth behind the increasingly terrifying supernatural visions that have been haunting her.
Joanna has made a successful career for herself, as sales representative for a trucking company. In contrast her private life has been difficult as she is estranged from her father Ed (Sam Shepard) and stalked by an obsessed ex-boyfriend Kurt Setzer (Adam Scott).
With few friends, Joanna fears that she is losing control because she sees and feels the brutal murder of a young woman she's never met, at the hands of a heartless killer - a man who appears to be making Joanna his next target.
Determined to fight back, Joanna is guided by her nightmares to the murdered woman's hometown of La Salle, Texas. Once there, she is drawn to an outsider, Terry (Peter O'Brien), and will discover that some secrets can't be buried; some spirits never die; and that the murder she is trying to solve may be her own.
Directed by Asif Kapadia (THE WARRIOR), co-stars include Peter O'Brien who makes his feature film debut, Adam Scott (ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL), Kate Beahan (FLIGHTPLAN) and Sam Shepard (STEALTH).
