A troubled young man retreats from the big city and his ex-wife for the tranquility of a small town. He is drawn into a relationship with a young woman whose boyfriend goes missing, leaving the new arrival as a suspect.
Alcoholic Billy reflects on his country-music career that never happened and beats his wife Glory Marie, also a drunk. Grown-up son Hank has moved away, but teenaged Phoebe and sensitive nine-year-old Bird have to live in the bleak alcoholic atmosphere. Problems escalate after a tragic event. The three females move into a trailer where the girls are subjected to a torrent of abuse from their mom. Fortunately, benign Miss Zora appears like a guardian angel to lift their spirits. Written by
I was lucky enough to pick this up on video. Surely is a great movie with some good acting, and very emotional scenes. Oprah Winfrey worlds richest female, and arguably most-giving celebrity stars as one who tries and helps her new friend from her alcoholic mother and violent path. A low-budget drama, but as mentioned they're several emotional scenes and might shred a tear in your eye. I suggest you all give this a watch, especially if you've had or witnessed the problems illustrated in the movie, it will touch you in a different spot. It's also got a rare opinionated ending, whereas the viewers can decide, if it's a good or bad thing. By all means one of Oprah's best movies, and one to look out for - for every Oprah fan!
