Movie synopsis: Meskada follows a small-town detective named Noah Cordin as he struggles to solve the brutal murder of a boy in the peaceful, affluent town of Hilliard. The killers left behind no clues at the crime scene, with the exception of a tiny scrap of paper leading Cordin back to his hometown of Caswell. Here, Cordin consults the county detective Leslie Spencer and reconnects with some old friends, all of whom are suffering from the economic troubles that have plunged Caswell into near-destitution. Cordin enlists the help of his friends Daniel Hartfield, a Caswell cop, and Billy Burns, a local bar owner. But as their search fails to turn up a suspect, feverish tensions rise between the towns of Hilliard and Caswell. The Meskada County Board of Commissioners—whose constituency includes Allison Connor, the mother of the dead boy and a prominent citizen of Hilliard—threatens to derail a new manufacturing plant from setting up in Caswell. The plant would provide hundreds of sorely needed jobs to the area. This threat energizes the investigators and all of Caswell to take part in the murder investigation. Together, they fight to reveal the identity of the killers, while trying to rescue their town from financial collapse. Through it all, Noah Cordin’s ties to his past and present are stretched to the breaking point, until the Connor murder reaches its shocking conclusion.
A gripping crime drama in the tradition of “No Country for Old Men” and “Mystic River,” Meskada is also a poignant meditation on solidarity and salvation in modern-day America.
