Storyline

During prohibition days, many hillbilly moonshine stills were hidden in hills of middle America. Jed Muldoon was about the best runner of moonshine whiskey around. Usually the local yokels were kinfolk of the runners and looked the other way while they were doing business. Naturally, the federal government was missing out on some tax money and were determined to shut them down. There's three things the government will never control, and one is making home brew.

True Piece of Crap
31 May 2000 | by (Flag Pond, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Saw this flick and thought it was the worst waste of celluloid I have seen in years. I live in Tennessee and believe me, this Canadian flick (yes, CANADIAN) has little bearing on the state of moonshining in the 1950's. Avoid it like a case of the clap.
