SYNPOSIS: From director Billy Ray (“The Hunger Games” and “Shattered Glass”) comes “Secret in Their Eyes”, an American thriller film that recounts the horrific murder case of an investigator’s daughter, based on the Argentinian novel La pregunta de sus ojos. A tight-knit team of rising investigators - Ray and Jess, along with their supervisor Claire - is suddenly torn apart when they discover that Jess's teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered. Now, thirteen years later, after obsessively searching every day for the elusive killer, Ray finally uncovers a new lead that he's certain can permanently resolve the case, nail the vicious murderer, and bring long-desired closure to his team. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking, unspeakable secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of personal vengeance on the human soul. Billy Ray directed “Secret in Their Eyes” based on the novel “La pregunta de sus ojos” by the Argentinian author, Eduardo Sacheri. The film was produced by Mark Johnson and Matt Jackson.
