Whitman, New York: a nice upstate town, the kind you never hear about... Youd get turned in by your neighbours for not separating your trash at the dump. Otherwise, everyone's your friend... Its the summer of 1984 and a killer who repeatedly manages to sneak up on people during the sex act upsets the superficially idyllic town of Whitman. With SATAN LAKE, J & G Dryansky push the envelope of a thriller to create a riveting, sardonic and nonetheless endearing portrait of life in America. Like a modern day Hansel and Gretel tale, SATAN LAKE engages our emotions in the plight of two kids on the cusp of puberty, Angie and Ross, who are trying to help each other straighten out lives twisted by abusive and dysfunctional adults, in a world that is Norman Rockwell by day and Edward Hopper by night. Their plight and the dread hanging over the town come together in a shocking resolution.
