missing pieces | 1999
Atticus Cody is an uncompromising man whose relationship with his son has never been the same since Scott, then a teenager, drove the car that crashed and accidentally killed his mother. Atticus could never bring himself to talk about the accident and offer Scott forgiveness. In turn, Scott, a talented and successful painter, moved to Mexico to get away from his father. When Atticus receives a call that Scott has taken his own life, he goes to Mexico to bring his son's body back home. Once there, he meets Renata, Scott's former girlfriend, who shows him the suicide note. When Atticus asks Renata for details of his son's life, things don't add up. He decides to investigate and learn more about the suspicious death (and possible murder) of his son.
