13 September 2001 | by (santa monica, ca) – See all my reviews

If you carefully look on the cover to the movie it says 'based on spoon river anthology'. Though the movie is very amateur, to really appreciate this film you need to have read Edgar Lee Master's classic book 'Spoon River Anthology'. The main character represents Masters digging up the past that nobody likes to hear about. The ghost that pops up all the time is what the book is attempting to make it's point at. The story isn't about anything in specific, just like the book. Every person in the book tells a monologue of greed, sorrow, pity, deception, etc.. The movie has people telling monologue that are exactly along those lines. An interesting thing about the heartland, ignored by big cities (and Hollywood especially), it has a richer base of conspiracy and silent secrets than any big thriller that comes out of LA,Chicago, or NY.
