"The Dry Land" marks the feature film debut from writer/director Ryan Piers Williams, telling the story of James (Ryan O'Nan), a veteran of the Iraqi conflict, as he returns home to a small town in West Texas and struggles to reconcile his experiences overseas with the life and family he left at home. Having only scattered memories of the deadly hit on his humvee in Iraq, James quickly slips back into the rhythm of his home life with his wife, Sara (Executive Producer America Ferrera), and his mother, Martha (Academy Award nominee Melissa Leo). However, taking a new job at his Father-In-Law's (Benito Martinez) slaughterhouse begins to stir his dormant anxieties.
