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

An open letter to back fork
17 April 2019 | by carsonbeachSee all my reviews

I've never fallen in love. Nor have I ever been addicted to pills, and I darn sure dont plan to do either. All I'm saying is while I cant relate to this movie at all in my personal life I really do believe the lord is real and does work in mysterious ways. He gives you the power to overcome and rise up when your face down in the muck and say I AM WHOLE!!! If I could give backfork a rating in bananas it would be a full and bountiful bushel.
