This is one of those films in which people on the edge of poverty and battling addiction still look like they walked off a Hollywood set.

King clearly wants to do right by these people, but at a certain point his empathy begins to hurt the film as much as it helps it, leaving us with the unsolvable irony of a movie that rings true only when it goes off the rails.

An unsensationalized look at moral compromise in opioid-era Appalachia.

This snapshot of life in a tapped-out Appalachian mining town holds the attention, even if it doesn't quite maximize potential as either melodrama or character piece.

Lastly, director Braden King makes good use of his setting. He maintains the feels of an economically depressed Appalachian town, which is a character in and of itself.

The [well-realized] setting doesn't make up for a familiar storyline, the one where a guy riding the edge between legal and illegal finds he can't keep the balancing act going indefinitely.
