Rich Hill, MO could be any of the countless small towns that blanket America's heartland, but to teenagers Andrew, Harley and Appachey, it's home. As they ride their skateboards and go to football practice, they are like millions of other boys coming of age the world over. But faced with difficult circumstances – isolation, instability, and parental unemployment – adolescence can be a daily struggle just to survive. With no road map and all evidence to the contrary, they cling to the hope that even they can live the American dream. Winner of the 2014 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, "Rich Hill" is an irresistibly moving and inspirational portrait of the challenges, hopes and dreams of rural America's youth.
