KANDIYOHI is an action packed modern-day western that brings the sleepy backdrop of rural Minnesota alive with violence and suspense. This breakout debut from writer and director Nicholas Engan tells the story of three down-on-their-luck friends drifting through life in their late-20s. After reconnecting during a visit to their hometown, a rapid spiral of drugs, shame, and betrayal will leave them with only one unbelievable option -- to rob the town's corrupt sheriff. When their plan goes fatally wrong, this group of friends will be pushed to the limit trying to outrun the law and its harsh brand of vengeance. It's all on the line in a cinematically stunning finale that will blow audiences away.
