Meet Cole Chambers from small town Lytton, BC. Trapped in this rural setting, he is faced with limited, yet important choices. For example he must choose between the pursuit of his dreams and the care of his troubled family. Cole`s sister Maybelline (Sonja Bennett) struggles to look after the family gas station while raising two young children, and managing a relationship with her abusive boyfriend, Bobby (Chad Willett). Bobby`s plans for their future exceed his abilities and resources. Cole must continuously rescue his nephew Rocket (Jack Forrester) from redneck Bobby’s influence. When he finally decides to escape his responsibilities and take a University class in the city (a three-hour drive from Lytton), Cole gets more than he bargained for: falling in love with a beautiful fellow student, Serafina (Kandyse McClure). Failing to impress Serafina`s high-strung family and watching things fall apart at home; Cole decides to return to his duties in Lytton. Serafina doesn’t want to let him go, and visits Lytton, triggering a fateful series of events.
Cole had its world premiere at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
