VISIBLE FROM FOUR STATES

SYNOPSIS

A small American town wrestles with whether to put a cross or a cellphone tower on its only hilltop -- as the local prison warden's friendship deepens with a young man on death row.

Visible from Four States sits at the modern crossroads of belief and communication, and asks if an individual can carry the moral burden of a nation.
