Get in the mood with Live Music with Master Blues player JOHN BURDICK before the film.
An adventure of the soul. Three young men in the waterlands of South Carolina rob a backwoods juke joint and flee up the coast to Myrtle Beach, armed with a souped-up Cutlass and a thirst for adventure.
A fundamental quest story told within 24-hours, the film is based on the filmmaker’s own experiences with depression and a crippling lack of confidence. Sparked by a chance meeting with a kindred spirit, the Preacher Man, Joseph’s journey becomes a quest for strength and courage – from being a timid boy to a spiritual warrior and finally a man.
The film incorporates tracks from Nina Simone, Otis Redding, Leadbelly, Chet Baker and more. It is a throwback to films of the 70′s and 80′s. Easy Rider meets The Outsiders meets Stand By Me, with its own unconventional structure, style, and pace, and a surprisingly spiritual theme.
