Summer 1969. Idealistic Peace Corps volunteer Everett Jones (played by Steppenwolf Theatre Ensemble regular Kevin Anderson) is assigned to a remote village in Colombia. On arrival, he is confused by the cynical attitude of his predecessor (Terry Kinney, Steppenwolf co-founder) and the apathy the villagers seem to hold toward him. It’s a tale of both hubris and hope, as Jones attempts to bring his version of progress to the rural village. Featuring stunning color cinematography by Adam Greenberg (Terminator, Ghost, Near Dark), this feature was produced by director Raphael and Joan Micklin Silver’s daughter Dina and includes an extended cameo by their daughter Claudia.
