The times were hard... decent men were driven to desperate acts.
During the darkes days of the Great Depression, even the sanest, most rational men were driven to desperate acts.....sometimes, even murder. Hard Traveling is the story of one such man and his impassioned struggle against his past, his conscience, and against the justice system that threatens his life and freedom.
Based on Alvah Bessie's critically acclaimed novel, "Bread and a Stone", this is the story of Ed Sloan - unemployed farmworker, loving husband and father.....and accused muderer. A man, like any other, trying to rise above the fallen hopes and broken dreams of his era.
Caught, Accused. Subjected to a hostile courtroom. Ed Sloan fights to maintain dignity in the face of mounting opposition. And fights to save the cherished respect and affection of his wife, Norah.
Incisive and powerful, sensitive and moving, Hard Traveling is a story of love, hardship, desperation, and hope.
