    The film, shot in Nelson County, is written and directed by John A. Coulter of Bloomfield and features local actors as well as farmers.

    The film takes audiences into the lives of tenant farmers as well as Asa Bodine, a man who returns to his inherited farmland after 40 years, having left during the Great Depression.

    “Never once, in my own personal experience, has an entire audience sat through the entire end credits of a film... not only once, but twice in a row,” Coulter wrote on social media following the showing.
