In the face of tragedy, the biggest salvation is the idea of forgiveness as portrayed in Keoni Waximan’s The Ravine, a story based on true life events.

Based on the book written by Kelly Pascuzzi and Robert Pascuzzi, The Ravine is about when an unspeakable crime rocks a peaceful community, family, and friends are left to wonder if they overlooked the murderer among them or if there might be more to the story.

The film has an all-star cast that included Eric Dane (Euphoria), Teri Polo (Meet the Parents), Peter Facinelli (The Vanished), Byron Mann (The Big Short), Leslie Uggams (Deadpool), and Kyle Lowder (Days of Our Lives). Keoni Waxman (The Hard Way) directed and wrote the screenplay.
