Storyline

Fresh out of prison, drifter musician JAKE (30's) steals a car and says goodbye to California. His destination is Palestine, Arkansas, population 678. It's here among the cotton fields and gravel roads where his father Henry lives and works as a crop duster pilot. Jake has never met his father, but holds him responsible for all of life's troubles- failure, jail, the death of his mother. Jake travels to the south with the intention of revenge. However, once he gets to this small town big things start to happen. It's here with nothing that he finds everything - life, love and a gospel record contract. And Jake learns that his momma may not have been quite so innocent through it all. Jake soon becomes part of a colorful ensemble cast that is as authentic and soulful as it gets. This is a movie about people, the characters just as important as the location. This musical movie has the heart and feel of a foreign film, but its country of origin just happens to be the Arkansas delta. Written by Anonymous

exceptional film about relationships and an arkansas community
4 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

we saw this film last nite as part of the woodstock film festival and was quite impressed with everything. usually i want to edit out a lot of most movies i see-- but this film "blew us away." It had a tight script with excellent acting and cinematography. the music central to the film was complementary and not overwhelming.. A refreshing indie film without the numerous product placements of Hollywood.

the film gave you a real sense of relationships-father- son, race in arkansas-- both from a white and black perspective. the film was shot in the hometown of the director and you really felt the sense of community.. It felt realistic enough to be a docudrama in the best sense.

we all left the theater in an uplifted mood wanting to hear more music from jake la botz and hoping the film will get a major release so many of our friends can share our enjoyment.. see this film if you can you won't be disappointed..
