Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Steven P. Wegner, Val Hill and Yale Badik are producing and filming begins April 9th in North Carolina.

Laurie Collyer (“Sherrybaby,” “Furlough”) will direct the film from screenwriter Diana Ossana (“Brokeback Mountain”) adapted from Stuart & Shelby Stout’s non-fiction novel.
