Sal (Frank Mosley) aspires to be a modern-day Thoreau, living and working in a remote Appalachian farming community. Facing hardships and the complications of a long-distance relationship with his girlfriend Rene, Sal questions the myth and reality of his values. After a tragedy strikes the close-knit community, Sal must reconcile his place in a world that lives outside of the law. Director Cameron Bruce Nelson's background in anthropology, documentary filmmaking, and experience working in Virginia as a farmhand for 3 years inform the film’s intense realism. Yet the film’s experimental feel and meditative moments create an intimate view into the culture of contemporary Appalachia.
