Frustrated by his own relatively unsuccessful life, Kyle Huff searched for purpose by stalking Seattle's rave scene, whose licentious lifestyle and exuberant sexuality both fascinated and repulsed him. 

Eventually Kyle unleashed his pent-up emotions in a shocking and suicidal last stand.

Although he committed a monstrous act, there was a man within the monster much like many other lonely and confused young men.  

Our aim is to accurately portray Kyle's emotional downfall. This tragedy must no longer be regarded simply as a mystery as was so often portrayed in the popular media.

It is important to understand Kyle Huff and the emotional well that ran so deep he was willing die in order to murder half a dozen others.

Thank you for your support of this important feature film based on true events. Remember, not a single dollar will be taken unless we reach our fundraising goal, which will allow the project to move forward.

You have the power to make this happen! Every dollar counts!!

FAQ

  • Absolutely not! Kyle Huff committed a monstrous act, destroying the lives six people and irrevocably damaging the lives of many others who lost loves ones.

    When we talk about "empathy" we are referring to the ability to see the world from Huff's perspective, to give us a better understanding about what happened.

    The underlying causal factor here was severe depression, according to the Panel Report on the Capitol Hill Shooting, chaired by James Fox, the nations leading expert on mass shootings, and former adviser to President Clinton on school shootings.

    Depression is an identifiable and treatable mental health issue.

    Had Huff's depression been properly addressed in the months leading up to the shooting, this tragedy would likely have been avoided.

    Again, these are not our own theories -- it's all in the Panel Report.

    We are not sympathizing with Huff or viewing him in any heroic light in any way shape or form. That is an utter and total misconception.

  • No -- this is a narrative film, that reconstructs Huff's emotional state during the days leading up to the shooting.
