Chris' last film, "Save Me", was filmed completely in El Paso and also had a plot that centered on domestic violence. It was about a former cop whose mother and father, along with his wife, are killed in a tragic example of domestic violence. Having been a cop for years, the main character, a man named Arkin, decides to take a leave of absence to establish a new form of "vigilante" justice. When the man responsible for all those deaths is released from prison, Arkin must act on his own.
