Synopsis

In 1967, in rural Appalachia, a Canadian documentary filmmaker, Hugh O'Connor, was shot and killed by a landowner who thought he was trespassing on his property. More than thirty years later, this crime is revisited and recontextualized through an examination of the role the media played in representing the people of Appalachia during the time of the incident, a period in which the news media had been flooding the town with news crews, leaving many residents feeling invaded and frustrated with how their simple lives were being misrepresented to the world.
