Rachael Leigh Cook,
A scam artist convinces a naive young woman in Whitman, Montana, that she is to be given a job by a major Chicago discount store. However, her dad and mom see through the ruse and tries to have him run out of town. At this point, the man confesses that he has a letter from a man who recently died in prison. The letter indicates that the young woman was fathered by him and a woman named Estelle and was placed in this couple's care, which they are forced to admit. This leads the young woman into a search for her real mother, who it turns out is a Blackfoot woman living in the "Hi-Line", a desolate area in Montana.Written by

"The Hi-Line" is an intelligently crafted, austere, minimalistic drama which tells of a 20 year old woman who encounters a somewhat older man who helps her discover secrets of her past. Shot in shiveringly cold, bleak, and wintery Big Sky country with a small cast, "The Hi-Line" focuses on the Alosio and Cook characters as it trudges through its simple tale of a mismatched pair of self-deprecating people who find common ground in their humanness. Sans all the hype and glitz of Hollywood products, this little sleeper will appeal most to realists.
