Fall gives way to winter as Sean and his daughter Caitlin stop off in a rural college town on their way back from an off-season beach vacation. They wander through the ridges and valleys of the Appalachian landscape, finding quiet, tenuous moments together as their time to reconnect winds to a close.
From a football game at one of the loudest stadiums in the country, to a lonely cabin in the mountains, and along the meandering forest roads, they finally lose their way while looking for a church down by the river.
Entirely improvised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia, LAUREL RUN ROAD is part fiction, part gentle observation of place.
