Steve’s lingering physical and emotional scars from the war in Afghanistan plunge him into a soulless routine. He continues his drab existence until the corpse of a beautiful singer, Diane, is dumped in his backyard, shaking him back to reality. Steve takes a photo of her before calling the police, and soon, he becomes obsessed with the dead woman’s image. Steve is scrutinized by the police, becoming the prime suspect hassled by Diane’s widower, and attacked by self-righteous neighbors. Before long, the malevolent ghost begins to work a dark spell that leads Steve to strange and startling revelations.
Michael Mongillo directed the film and wrote the screenplay with Matt Giannini. Diane stars Jason Alan Smith, Carlee Avers, Margaret Rose Champagne, Dick Boland, and Jim Thalman.
