A film by Maura Anderson
Run time 99 minutes

Heartland Desperado 2017HEARTLAND tells the story of Lauren who has moved back to her Oklahoma home with her mom, Crystal, following the sudden death of her girlfriend. The arrangement leads the relentlessly chipper Crystal to believe her daughter is headed back to the straight and narrow. However, Lauren is only following her mom’s traditional plans for her future in order to stave off the pain of the recent tragedy.

Featuring Laura Spencer(The Big Bang Theory), Beth Grant(NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN), and Velinda Godfrey.

Heartland is a powerful and emotional story of dealing with loss and what defines family. A unique and moving film that’s not to be missed.

Suggested for Adult Audiences.
