Deep in rural Missouri, beyond the meth labs and abandoned Main Streets, surrounded by cornfields and suburban sprawl, Adelyne quietly subsists on the family farm. When her estranged father falls ill, Adelyne is pressured to sell the farm to pay for his care. Instead, she takes in the belligerent old drunk, reluctantly accepting the help of an unlikely ally, Daddy’s home nurse Jake Dobbins. As Jake and Daddy push Adelyne into the modern world, she pulls them back to the good earth. But old wounds heal slowly, old habits die hard, and good old boys ain’t easy to tame.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
