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

Great movie but it is not what you think
16 January 2019 | by bobjs36See all my reviews

I am not a religious person. I will start by stating that. The movie was excellent as long as you are a deep thinker. My husband would have never been able to watch this. I thought it was brilliant. The movie definitely does not play out the way you would assume based on the trailer and comcast description.
