...At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Al's mind and his past becomes present as harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life."

Director Josh Trank dropped the trailer to twitter without any warning just a few hours ago, watch it above. The trailer reveals the film will be about the "untold story of his final chapters".
