Storyline

BACK FORK is the story of an everyman, WAYLON, struggling to hold his life and family together after a heartbreaking tragedy. He and his wife, NIDA, barely recognize themselves, let alone each other. Their inability to continue on and to heal, leaves them hopeless. With the growing burden of the unanswered questions of why, and a heavy dose of self-blame, It's only a matter of time before Waylon turns to the magic of the pills to make the problems disappear. He finds a kindred spirit in his sister, RAYLENE, as he sleep walks through life with addiction. It's only a matter of time until Waylon finds himself at a crossroads. He learns that he's been asking the wrong question all along. The question isn't why, rather, where do I go from here? He's then able to see that we're all wounded animals. Sometimes we die, but sometimes we live. Written by Josh Stewart

Goofs

When Waylon is at the bar right after his wife tells him that she wants a divorce, Nona (the female bartender) goes to pour a drink. As she walks away, the male bartender can clearly be seen in the background facing Waylon's direction and walking toward him. As the camera cuts to a close-up scene, the male bartender is suddenly at the end of the bar facing the opposite direction. See more »

I recommend this movie 100%. The story line is one that many people can relate to and it could help those who are struggling with addiction or know someone who is. It will have you feeling every type of emotion from the very beginning. The acting plays a big part in that also, every single one of the cast did an amazing job.
