Donovan's Echo

Canada/English (90 mins)

Edmonton Premiere! Donovan Matheson (Danny Glover, in a career-highlight performance) is a brilliant mathematician who, as a young man, helped develop the atomic bomb. Plagued by regret in the years that followed, Donovan grew obsessed with making a positive contribution to the scientific community – neglecting his family and friends in favour of personal and professional redemption. Neglect that results in an accidental tragedy. Overcome with guilt, Donovan retreats from his own life for 3 decades…

Thirty years later, Donovan returns home. And as the anniversary of his personal tragedy approaches, he discovers and unsettling similarity between random events from the present, and events that actually occurred in the past. Convinced that history is repeating itself, Donovan risks everything to break the cycle – hoping to save an unsuspecting family from the same tragic fate.
