When his brother dies in an accident, Carter goes to the funeral hoping to make amends for past mistakes by reconnecting with what's left of his family. After learning that his brother was murdered, Jack metes out his own brutal brand of justice - but the closer he gets to his goal, the more he questions his actions. With Britt Ekland.


THE WICKER MAN
