The Samaritan trailer

After spending twenty-five years in prison, Foley (Samuel L. Jackson) is finished with the grifting. Set on turning his life around, he feels his possibilities opening up when he meets a young woman named Iris (Ruth Negga). But his past comes back to haunt him when Ethan (Luke Kirby), the son of his former partner, has an ingenious plan he wants Foley in on. 

Foley fights it, but he continues to get more and more ensnared in Ethan’s web of secrets until he’s forced to take care of wrongs from his past.

Written and directed by David Weaver, The Samaritan hits theaters on a limited release starting on May 18.
