Indie Spotlight: Trailer for PRODIGAL SONS

Kimberly Reed is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, whose debut film PRODIGAL SONS sees her assuming the role of director, editor, producer, and subject. The film focuses on two estranged brothers - one a former high school football star, one an adoptee who always felt out of place and is now living with the effects of a crippling car accident. But to say there are some twists to the story of PRODIGAL SONS is to undermine the magic and pain of life's own twists.

The out-of-place adoptee? The unsuspecting grandson of Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth. The former high school quarterback? Reed herself. You read that right. Framed up against a high school reunion in Montana and a family reunion in Croatia, PRODIGAL SONS explores what happens when you come home as an entirely different person, and what that means to everyone you come home to.
