As Chrystal and Joe slowly reach out to one another, events once again, conspire to tear them apart. Chrystal's feisty mother, Gladys (Grace Zabriskie) disapproves of Joe and his return. An old enemy named Snake, (writer/director Ray McKinnon), a gnarly, crank-snorting drug dealer, sees Joe as a threat and seeks to reel him in or take him out.
Into this world of poverty, drugs, and at times, hilarious hillbilly hijinks comes Kalid (Harry Lennix), a blind African-American musicologist from Chicago who is studying the native mountain music of the region. It is through Kalid that Chrystal rekindles her forgotten love of her mountain roots, the mysteries of the land—its poetry, magic, music and history. But it is only through Joe, and his astonishing gesture, that Chrystal is able to truly renew her broken spirit. Also starring are co-producer Walton Goggins, Harry Dean Stanton, and James Intveld as a quiet, good-hearted sheriff.blog comments powered by Disqus
