Cole Freeman (Philip Ettinger, First Reformed) maintains an uneasy equilibrium in his declining Appalachian mining town, looking after the old and infirm in the community while selling their excess painkillers to local addicts to help make ends meet. But when his old friend, Terry Rose (Cosmo Jarvis, Lady Macbeth), returns with dangerous plans that threaten the fragile balance Cole has crafted, his world and identity are thrown into disarray.
Cole's life is further complicated by the sudden homecoming of his estranged mother, Ruby (Lili Taylor, The Conjuring), and his shifting relationships with two local women, Charlotte (Stacy Martin, Vox Lux) and Lacy (Kerry Bishé, “Halt and Catch Fire”). Faced with an impossible set of choices and increasing pressure from all sides, Cole decides to take action to save the tight-knit fabric of family, friendship, land and history that binds everything - and everyone - he loves.
The second narrative feature from director Braden King (Here, Sundance 2011 U.S. Competition), THE EVENING HOUR presents an empathetic portrait of a rural American landscape in transition - and the people fighting to survive within it.
