Scene Set in Prohibition-era northern Vermont. A former whiskey runner decides to make one last trip across the border in an attempt for fast cash.

Genre Vermont “Western” meets Coming of Age.

Highlights Stunning landscape cinematography, all filmed on location; complex characters by a distinguished cast (Kris Kristofferson, Gary Farmer, Geneviève Bujold, Luis Guzmún); and a story line with supernatural elements and mystery.

Trivia St. Johnsbury’s main street was covered with dirt and the parking meters removed for the in-town shots.

Recommendation This film completes director Jay Craven’s trilogy based on local author Howard Frank Mosher’s books. The others are Where the Rivers Flow North and A Stranger in the Kingdom. To learn how Craven makes his films on a shoestring budget, get the DVD Act of Faith.
