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

I love Josh Stewart as an actor, , so I expected to like this, and ended up being completely impressed by this film which he stars in, wrote and directed. A film about the opioid epidemic and it's effects on a West Virginia family , this movie is perfectly cast, with amazing performances from every one, gritty, realistic, and yet also understated. The Cinematography is outstanding. There is nothing phony and Hollywood about this, it draws you in and you come to care about the characters who are so much more then their drug addictions. Since in real life I also live in the south and know these people, I can say this movie is 100% real life. Josh has done an amazing job with both directing and writing this and even more impressive, where other actors turned director could have made this all about themselves, he allows the other actors to shine too, especially A.J. Cook as his wife, Agnes Bruckner as his sister, David Selby as his father and an outstanding sleazy performance by Wade Williams as a dealer. A small movie with a big impact, great cinema !
