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.

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.
