Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Nick Searcy directed this Depression-era drama set in the rural South. Farmer's son Henry Bancroft (Sean Bridgers), in hard-scrapple North Carolina of 1934, finds his father's farm is about to be taken over by the bank. His pal Oshel Hooper (Christopher Berry), who lost his father during WWI, talks of settling societal debts by staging robberies for the benefit of "the people." After Henry begins to take Oshel seriously, a series of robberies leads the two into a grim way of life where doom awaits around the next curve in the dirt road. Shown at the 1998 Hollywood Film Festival.
