Things Behind the Sun is a 2001 drama directed by Allison Anders. For three years running, a young woman shows up drunk on the same date, on the same lawn in Cocoa Beach, Florida. The woman is Sherry McGrale (Kim Dickens), a rock and roll singer with a popular song based on her own story of being the victim of a brutal gang rape. As the song grows in popularity, it reaches the ears of Owen Richardson (Gabriel Mann), a young reporter for a Los Angeles based music magazine who was a childhood friend of Sherry. When Owen travels to Florida to meet and interview Sherry, however, it becomes evident that he and Sherry were more than just friends. As Owen helps track down those responsible for Sherry's rape, he comes to grips with his own past. Now he must confront his brother Dan (Eric Stoltz) and choose between family and justice in order to free his conscience.
