In the Middle of Nowhere

by Bret Murphy

Directed by Hannah Williams

The story centers on Cynthia Scott, a retired art professor who escapes to the Black Mountains of North Carolina after a harrowing experience in her “previous” life. Despite her fiercely independent nature, she eventually forms a relationship with Del, a young man who has recently been released from prison. They challenge each other in unexpected ways … but the question remains, will either of them accept forgiveness?
