Winner Grand Jury Prize – Documentary – 2014 Sundance Film Festival
A portrait of three Rich Hill, MO teenagers — Appachey West, Harley Hood and Andrew Jewell — and of a tiny, former coal-mining town with nothing left to offer them, the film turns an intimate, unsentimental eye on adolescence and grinding rural poverty. Narration, statistics and prescriptions are absent; instead, the tender, angry, hopeful teenagers tell their own stories.
