Macdara Ó Fátharta,
A heartbroken man attends a spiritual retreat to cleanse himself and fix his broken life. There he meets a fellow lost soul, and together they discover that "the cleanse" releases more than everyday toxins...a lot more.
When small town drifter Sammy Barlach drives into town on the search for his next cold beer and the bunch that'll have him, he gets a lot more than he bargained for. Food, lodging and the possibility of a better future thanks to redheaded Jamalee and her brother Jason who dream of hitting the big time. But breaks aren't easy to come by if you live in Venus Holler. Finding themselves powerless against the forces of corruption and prejudice, the hardest thing Sammy has to fight is the demons inside his own head.
This is just one of hundreds of new films I've seen in the last few years, and one of the better and more memorable.
I've seen thousands of films, and (imho) this one ought to be rated at least 7.4; and for those of us whom especially appreciate good writing and fine performances tempered with deft direction, maybe 8+.
The story summary at IMDb is close enough, but misdirects with clichés, which together with the low budget almost led me to pass it by. Instead, I'm lifted by the reminder that truly good stories just need good storytellers.
