THE FOUR WINDS with a dash of UPROOTED and MIGRATIONS

 

Oklahoma, 1893. High Noon.

It's still the wild west. The world is hot, lawless, barren. Tenacious Minnie Hoopes flees her past, determined to create a new life. Alone.

 

IN THE GREAT QUIET is a story about memory and perception, isolation versus community, and one’s elemental, propulsive search for home. And of course, there’s a sexy cowboy.

Based on the true story of Laura's grandmother's grandmother.
