Two seemingly different men embark on a music-steeped journey through the American South, learning along the way that life isn't about where you end up - it's how you get there that matters. Somewhere between Austin, TX and Huntsville, AL the two men become unlikely friends. However, every road has an end. In Huntsville, sad truths come to light, with heartbreak and violence lingering in their wake, ultimately leaving both men changed forever. Written by
I really enjoyed this movie!! A great story with twist and turns, great blues and country music,characters with depth and great cinematography!!!The chemistry between all the characters including Michael Clarke Duncan,Morgan Simpson,Tom Skerritt and Kiele Sanchez was amazing too!!! Mario Van Peebles' directing lead this film through a journey that will inspire you and cause you to take a piece of it home with you. Luke Perry and Taryn Manning also put in great performances. The movie moves along at a pace that grabs your attention and you will not let go or want to look away. A must see for great entertainment,yet a story that will stick with you too!!!!
