Summary
A former prison guard and talented fiddler returns to his Montana hometown to bury his wife and confront an inmate who, twenty years earlier, held him hostage during a prison riot
Summary
Meditative and Montana-set, this debut is a modern American Western that tells the story of former prison guard Wes Carver, tortured 20 years ago by an inmate who's now up for parole, claiming to have found religion. Though Wes moved away, he's back in Black River (with his wife's ashes) to speak against the parole hearing. He's also got some work to do in repairing his damaged relationship with his stepson. Awash in bluegrass music, this is a wrenching story of a broken man trying to find his way back. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
