Director and co-writer Zachary Treitz based the story on his own family history. His ancestors settled an area of Kentucky similar to the community portrayed in the movie. He and co-writer Kate Lynn Scheil (who also plays Josephine Small) extensively researched local history from the period and read actual letters and diaries to get ideas. See more »

I found this movie in a section on Netflix called award winning movies and after viewing the movie I figured it must of been a participation ribbon. The characters were so poorly portrayed that you could not make connection to them or care about what happens to them. The acting was wooden and tiresome, the plot poorly executed. Not a good effort and not worth watching.
