The Hole in the River

A gritty, feel-good dramedy, reminiscent of Stand By Me, is set in small town America in the 1970’s, where four boys befriend a Muslim man who is falsely arrested by an evil sheriff. These boys (Native American, African American, Korean American, and American trailer trash), who are themselves bullied and marginalized, must make a stand against a white and entitled America that was never great and should never be returned to.
