A former Arizona sheriff's wife is killed while riding on their ranch property. It would appear a Mexican man illegally crossing into the US is at fault. As the former and the current sheriff search for answers, lives are changed forever.

The first-ever film to tell the entire story of the conservative woman in her own words, "Fire from the Heartland" is a powerful statement about America at a crossroads and the women who have awakened to the crisis.

In the scene where everyone is eating dinner and Sheriff Jackson carves into Josiah's precious table to explain the disappearance of Levi and Jacob. Several table tops were used for different takes to remove the etches Ed Harris created. During the off camera carvings, a basic piece of small flat wood was used so the original table was not damaged. See more »
Tucumcari was founded as a railroad town in 1901 as "Ragtown" and was re-named "Tucumcari" in 1908. The story is obviously not set in 1908. See more »
SWEETWATER is a nicely-done noirish parody of the old spaghetti western. Plot-wise, it's rather predictable, without many big surprises, but it keeps your attention and incorporates steady humor without turning into a complete slapstick joke. Best of all are the very colorful cast of characters: Crazy charlatan cult leader; beautiful, now-married former prostitute who's out to settle down and lead a quiet, simple life; unstable yet nobly maverick sheriff; perverted clothier; and a whole bunch of sheep who contribute a great deal to the story (really, they do).
Intelligently simple entertainment--nothing to be taken too seriously. Great performances by Ed Harris (sheriff) and January Jones (former prostitute).
