Following an eclectic mix of oddball residents, this documentary takes a look at the small New England town of Southbridge, Mass., and the eccentric characters that make up its population. Shot and edited over a six-year period, first-time filmmakers (and Southbridge natives) Rod Murphy and Justin Earls invoke a genuine sense of hometown pride as they capture a portrait of intimacy and unflinching realism, set to an indie rock soundtrack.
