Tell Tale

Truth Lies a Heartbeat Away.


Tell Tale
Loosely inspired by the classic tale by Edgar Allen Poe, a young man gets a new lease on life when he undergoes a heart transplant. However it's not long before his new heart starts playing up, beating loudly when he is near certain strangers. He discovers the heart came from a murder victim, and that the people that set it racing are in some way connected to the murder. The heart wants revenge, and he will not have peace until he helps out ... This went straight to DVD overseas.
