In Theresa Schwegel’s Probable Cause, newbie Chicago cop Ray Weiss breaks into a jewelry store to steal a ring but finds the shopkeeper’s corpse instead. His refusal to bury the case lands him in trouble with both the baddies and his fellow officers.

Movie Pitch
A Stranger Among Us, but with Lithuanians instead of Hasidic Jews!

What Schwegel’s effort lacks in characterizations, it makes up for in complicated plot twists.
