The Long Way Home, A Bigfoot Story

Down-and-out former Miami Herald reporter D.J. Galloway finds himself facedown at his favorite watering hole in Southbeach when, out of nowhere, flashing across the television is a breaking story about bigfoot sightings in D.J.'s hometown of Indian Camp Mountain, in Transylvania County, N.C. In a moment of clarity, D.J. decides to pack it up, move home and report this story in an effort to resurrect his career, re-connect with his roots and potentially reveal the greatest news story ever. This full-length feature has it all: a bigfoot, of course, but also a character named "cornbread", a snake handler, a drag queen, hundreds of dead chickens, and real salt-of-the-earth southern locals who add a unique, gritty charm to a film you will be hard- pressed to forget.
