In the wake of his acclaimed documentary The Farmer's Wife, filmmaker David Sutherland turns his lens on two teenagers growing up in the Appalachian hills of eastern Kentucky, capturing their struggle to overcome poverty and family dysfunction. Filmed over the course of three years, Sutherland's moving portrait of Chris Johnson and Cody Perkins is as much about their coming of age as it is about a forgotten region of America.
