They finish each other's sentences, dance like Fred and Ginger, and share the same downtown loft--the perfect couple? Not exactly. Gray and Sam, are a sister and brother so compatible and inseparable that people actually assume they are dating. Mortified, they both agree they must branch out and start searching for love. He'll look for a guy for her and she'll look for a gal for him.
Maggie (Sissy Spacek) is alone on her farm. George wants to sell both of their farms to a road construction. Out of the blue, her son Billy shows up with a boy named Clayton and on the run from a drug dealer. Billy and Maggie have issues from the past. Billy reconnects with Jennifer who is now a police deputy.
Sissy Spacek is certainly the big name in this and she keeps the attention of the audience. Troy Garity is nominally the lead but he lacks overall charisma. Dave Matthews, of his own band, plays the heavy villain. While he gets some of the grim of a lowlife, he does not have the power of a menace. There isn't enough of everything. The reveal of the past teases on for too long with limited effect. This should be a cold-blood crime drama but it only gets there at the end. It's too little too late. Nothing happens for far too long.
