LisaGay Hamilton and Lily Rabe star in this "contemporary western" from Dire Wolf Productions, written and directed by Britta Sjogren.
Titled Redemption Trail, the film follows 2 strong, yet deeply troubled women, who have experienced either political ot personal trauma, and who are both fleeing pasts that haunt them. One is the daughter of a murdered Black Panther revolutionary - Tess, played by LisaGay Hamilton - who lives off the grid on a Sonoma vineyard, fiercely detached from the rest of world. Her hermetic life cracks when she gives reluctant shelter to a desperate young woman, Anna (played by Lily Rabe) who has attempted suicide in a nearby forest. An unlikely alliance forms between the two, where other close relationships have failed, as their differences open them up to new visions of themselves.
Jake Weber and Hamish Linklater co-star as Tess' employer and Anna's husband.
The drama is currently traveling the film festival circuit. It last screened at the Mill Valley Film Festival.
