Within an innovative structure, the quirky rural town of Mud Meadows is the backdrop of Reed Fish’s story. On the surface, Reed’s life is already seemingly about to become complete. He has an established role in the community and will marriage to his beautiful fiancĂ©e, Kate. But when Jill, his old high school friend and fledging country singer, comes back to town, everything starts to unravel. After a series of unfortunate mishaps, he is left with nobody. Reed goes on a tirade against his own town during his daily radio with his best friend. Bruised and battered physically, as well as emotionally, Reed’s soul-searching materializes into a decision to make a film of his life. The story is told through his eyes as we interweave between the movie of his life and the night of its first screening.
