Jack And The Dustbowl

From Whitestone Motion Pictures, a short film titled Jack and the Dustbowl, centered around...

Jack Spriggs, a poor dust bowl farmer from Alabama, is determined to keep his family’s land. Set during the Great Depression, record heat waves and over-farming have turned the once fertile soil into worthless dust. Refusing to become a victim of his circumstances, Jack embraces his surroundings and digs in. Jack’s tenacious spirit and ingenuity will either keep his family together or he'll lose everything trying.

    Enjoyed this, especially since I'm dealing with my own personal dustbowl period in my life.
