Storyline

When Emma Gardner, a whip smart NYC reporter learns of her father's untimely death, she returns to her home town to find that the idyllic farming community of her childhood has been ravaged by drought and has become a place tormented by gangs and the ill effects of extreme poverty. She quickly figures out that her dad's accidental death was not accidental at all. The lists of possible suspects include overly zealous environmentalists, a local war lord and other farmers jealous of her father's outstanding reputation. Written by AnonymousB

Trivia

"Bella Conejo" does not sound right in Spanish. "Conejo" means rabbit and is a masculine noun. "Bella" means beautiful but is a feminine adjective. The right way would have been, for example, "Conejo Bonito" or "Coneja Bonita". See more »

Undervalued solid movie
26 August 2017 | by gaykathleenSee all my reviews

Jane Seymour is worth a few stars for a start. I loved seeing the beautiful Jane Seymour as an older lady, still beautiful and a wonderful actor. The main star is an Aussie although born in England she migrated to Australia as an infant. She is also a solid actor. The male star is also a decent actor. He plays the local sheriff who seems to have no backup but does he? A credible performance from him as well! Was the script original or riveting? Maybe not but it told a story and was not predictable at every stage. I did not want to turn it off or walk away so some reviews are lacking credibility. The themes are timeless but still need to be shown again and again, Relationships and misunderstandings happen all the time but in this case they are fixable. Values such as the land and people's livelihoods and lives are worth preserving. Intimidating the little people has consequences as food must be grown and people must be fed. It could be an afternoon movie to while away the time which may surprise those who take a chance and watch this underrated movie.
