With one bullet, Motley’s life spirals out of control as he’s forced to go on the run from the ruthless southern crime lord, Jed Haywood. Tracking Motley is Boon, Haywood’s best henchman and close friend. Boon’s brother has recently passed away in a horrific car accident and today is the funeral. He has ten hours to bring Motley in and get to the cemetery.

Over the course of one day, both Motley and Boon go on a spiritual journey as their fate brings them together for a climactic showdown…

“The story will never catch anyone off-guard, and Red Stone definitely has a problem with repetitiveness, but there are enough fight scenes and tension charged moments to keep things interesting. The film never quite connects on the emotional level it seems to be aiming for, but it will also prevent audiences from walking away.” AIPT

“This repetitive plot, and believe me when I said “and so on and so on,” is hurt enormously (if that’s even imaginable) by a low rent cast. Neal McDonough, an actor whose work I usually admire, sleepwalks through this film. He looks like he’s stepped on something untoward as he tries to portray grief, although he’s more effectively deadpan when dispatching his rivals.” Easy Reader News

In the USA, Red Stone will be released theatrically and On-Demand by Cinedigm on December 3rd 2021.
