The Road to Galena starring Ben Winchell, Will Brittain and Aimee Teegarden
All roads lead to small-town America in Joe Hall’s The Road to Galena which stars Ben Winchell, Will Brittain, and Aimee Teegarden.
The drama from the first-time director Joe Hall captures the essence of the rat race as it sacrifices a person’s small-time life he left behind.
Here is the official synopsis:
The Road to Galena follows one man’s pursuit of personal fulfillment over traditional success. Cole Baird (Ben Winchell) has everything—a beautiful wife, successful career, large home and fancy toys.
Behind the façade, however, is a man trapped by his surroundings and failing ever behind in the pursuit of his life’s dream.
Not strong enough to confront his father’s expectations, he left his true love, his best friend, and fulfilling small-town life to embark on a legal career—intent, one day, to return.
Now the rising star in Washington social circles and the youngest managing partner in the history of a powerhouse D.C. law firm, Cole is given the choice to continue the path of success in a life to which he never aspired or to return to the community that nurtured him.
The film also stars Alisa Allapach, Jay O. Sanders, Jill Hennessy, Margaret Colin, and Jennifer Holliday.
