Rob Diamond‘s latest film Wayward is a modern-day retelling of the parable of the prodigal son found in Luke 15. Based on the trailer, the movie appears to keep closely to the story line of one of the Bible's most famous parables.
After asking his father for his inheritance and receiving a $500,000 cashier's cheque, Tyler Macmillan escapes the shadow of his overachieving brother and heads to Las Vegas. Once there, Tyler loses everything in a high stakes game of poker and finds himself on the run from violent men who are out to end his life. He returns home with an empty bank account to face his father and beg for forgiveness.
The movie is set to hit theatres November 7th, with a limited release in the US.
