Storyline

A scam artist convinces a naive young woman in Whitman, Montana, that she is to be given a job by a major Chicago discount store. However, her dad and mom see through the ruse and tries to have him run out of town. At this point, the man confesses that he has a letter from a man who recently died in prison. The letter indicates that the young woman was fathered by him and a woman named Estelle and was placed in this couple's care, which they are forced to admit. This leads the young woman into a search for her real mother, who it turns out is a Blackfoot woman living in the "Hi-Line", a desolate area in Montana. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Ron Judkins is a great director
3 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

This film is a beautiful gem about interiority and emotional landscapes. The cinematography is gorgeous -- all whites and vast openness, but not boring. Ron Judkins, the director, is daring and courageous to make a film this thoughtful and quiet. Seems like a lot of European films. Too bad that we don't support such filmmaking on our own soil. This movie should have been picked up by a big studio. I hope Judkins makes more films.
