An aging painter living in exile returns to his southern hometown, where his family endured generations of racial violence, to bury his estranged sister. Once there he begins to fantasize the people around him as a series of vignettes and portraits in order to bury the pain and find something beautiful to feel, however strange and fleeting, at odds but never too far away from the scars of the past.Written by
Bold step towards a greater understanding - conflicts in diversity
For a person of white decent and growing up in the North before living my life in the South, I found the film to be a step in right direction as far as the storyline. As with anything placed out into public scrutiny, there will always be those who feel it doesn't suit their taste. In the short time being a part of the film, cast and crew, I was allowed to see and feel firsthand the attempts by Jordan and his crew to capture the meaning of and present a subject that at times is too controversial to talk about. Cudos for stepping forward to help us, as a nation, to bridge the gap and clear up the misunderstandings that we allow to cloud our judgment. American's have the right voice their opinions, that is what is great about this country, and am proud to be currently serving to defend this right and equally proud to have been, regardless of how small, a part of this film.
