Chris Eska’s film “The Retrieval” is about a young boy sent to turn in a wanted man to a dangerous gang of bounty hunters. Filmed in rural Texas, the movie stars young Ashton Sanders as Will, and Tishuan Scott as Nate, the wanted man. The two form a close bond in the film, yet Will’s knowledge that he may have to betray that friendship casts a shadow over their relationship and adds tension to the narrative.
