Storyline

A military aircraft crash kills over a dozen Southern soldiers, including several from a small Southern town. The funeral draws several emigrated relatives home. Among them are fading country-singer Bo Price, absent father, and Angela Delton, workaholic 'single' mother of teenager Dixie Leigh, who can only be blackmail-lured along by permission to rejoin her Californian lover Kyle afterward. They're all confronted with each-other, their past and prospects, and bond after Leigh's shameless attitude misleads cocky local rascal Wyatt. Written by KGF Vissers

Broken Bridges with Toby Keith
8 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie .The Characters were easy to relate to. Toby can act as well as sing. I think he has another career started. It was a believable story line that tugged at the heart. The movie kept my attention and could have went on another hour and I still would have been engaged in the story. There is only one negative comment I can make, I hated for it to end. Lindsey Haun has a great voice, loved the song she did "Broken". I saw her in person at a Toby Keith concert in Aug. 2006 and was very impressed. I was delighted to see Burt Reynolds and Kelly Preston on the movie screen again and as usual, both giving a memorable performance.
