ANOTHER MOTHER'S SON (2017) - COMPLETED

 - The Guardian

Based on the true story of Louisa Gould, the drama is set during World War II on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey. Lou took in an escaped Russian POW and hid him over the war's course. The tension mounts as it becomes clear that Churchill will not risk an assault to recapture the British soil, and the island-community spirit begins to fray under pressures of hunger, occupation and divided loyalty. Against this backdrop, Lou fights to preserve her family's sense of humanity and to protect the Russian boy as if he was her own.

In the Afghan desert, Australian Sergeant Jill Manning leads a small squad to construct a small Green Zone of security bunkers. Joining her is hot-headed Dalton Shultz and Kris Lefferson, who is on his first tour of duty. Something is awry between Manning and Shultz, rumors of a tragic incident in a prior mission. Manning sees a wounded Afghan girl wandering in the desert. Feeling protective, she orders her team to help her to safety. Suddenly, insurgents attack with ferocity. One by one, Lefferson, Shultz and Manning are killed. But then, the next day, Manning awakes, finding the events of the previous day repeating. Before convincing her squad what is happening, they discover the Afghan girl and are killed again. On the third loop, Manning finds the shocking truth: Shultz is sabotaging all attempts to break this cycle of limbo (between life and death). A haunting tale of redemption and sacrifice, The Fall is an exciting, edge-of-your-seat mystery action thriller. Will Manning crack the ceaseless war-time “Groundhog Day” in order to save the girl and her crew?

Bradley is a Sociology professor at a local college who seems like a normal man, but his outward appearance is only a façade. He secretly lures women from his classroom to kidnap them and imprison them in his secluded home on the outskirts of town. When Bradley gets bored with the women or they have served their purpose he kills them. The longest survivor is a woman named Jennifer who has been his prisoner for a decade. She has developed Stockholm’s syndrome after years of captivity and is fueled on her basic instinct to survive.
Bradley’s newest “trophy” is Hailey, very bright student and a strong, somewhat rebellious character. When kidnapped, Hailey finds herself in a sometimes supportive and sometimes competitive relationship with Jennifer.  
Meanwhile, in a scrapyard in another part of town a worker discovers the remains of a woman who has been tortured and brutally murdered. Arriving to take the case is young detective Darren Hawk - a sharp, intelligent cop who follows the evidence. Hawk’s investigation into the murder leads him to a local college where he meets an unassuming Bradley. However, Hawk’s suspicions begin to rise with Bradley as the coincidences start to mount, but with no evidence to support his claims Hawk discovers that he must use his innate instincts if he is going to capture this cunning killer red-handed. Will Hawk find the women before Bradley decides to kill again?
