Storyline

A young widower moves with his daughter into a North Carolina mountain town in 1934. He quickly takes up with a young woman with an illegitimate baby. First he must prove himself to her father and her three brothers. He does so first by joining them on a bear hunt and then by designing a clock tower for the small community. Trouble comes when it is revealed that the baby's father is the demented son of a mean clan across the river and they mean to take the child back. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

One of My Top 10
19 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a surprisingly wonderful movie. I love the mountains, and the way these people lived was incredibly awesome.

This story makes me feel like going to the highest mountains to live. The actors were perfect for each part.

The way these folks dealt with real life was real justice. They did it the way it should be done.

The way they tracked down all the evidence was amazing. Their skills were uncanny.

At the end, GODS hand turned even the hardest heart into a soft one.

The decency was there, and things were as they should be.

If you haven't seen this movie, please take time to watch it. It is GREAT.
