directed by Charlie Sexton

Doctor Buchanan and the preacher’s daughter Alma have been close since they were young, and their lifelong friendship has withstood their incompatible approaches to life and satisfaction. But as the doctor prepares to finally settle down–with another woman–Alma finds herself stranded at a desperate, tragic crossroads.
