Storyline

Set against the scenic backdrop of a vibrant New England fall... a story of homecoming and healing unfolds when Kurt hits the streets of Garrison Falls, New Hampshire. Traveling for nearly three years after his mother's death, Kurt is back to reconcile with his father Kenneth and brother Elijah. But his plans are quickly derailed when he befriends Dwayne, a benevolent comrade of the town misfits. Over a game of cards, Kurt meets Eddie, a deadbeat dad hiding from gambling debts, and Seamus, an antisocial pack rat withdrawn from the world around him. Together, the four characters form an uncompromising fellowship that pushes them into the fringes of society. This is a stirring and complex vision wrapped in breathtaking scenery.

Life can make you crazy.
15 April 2004 | by kathyfilm-1See all my reviews

I expected very little from this indie, but then found myself so engrossed that I refused to pause it for a snack or bathroom break.

The lead actor needs polish, but that didn't deter from the interesting characters and storytelling. They all did a great job. When I think my life is swirling down, heading for the toilet rush, I watch this and feel much better.

I think Jeff Palmer did a wonderful job and shows his 'Indie Spirit' by putting together an interesting and thought-provoking film together with sheer will, a few friends, and a piece of truth in life.

I enjoyed viewing it and will watch it again. When Jeff makes another movie, I'll be sure to look out for it. I hope it's a sequel, without a sequel feel to it.
