With his career hanging in the balance, a tormented songwriter must confront his deepest wound when visited by someone from his distant past.

JT is a successful singer-songwriter-recording artist from the Red Willow Indian Reservation. After ten years in Nashville and a string of hits on his resume, JT finds himself in a creative rut. On this rainy evening he locks himself away in a motel room with his guitar in hopes of conjuring up the muse. While battling a ticking clock with Titan Records, JT is visited by someone from his distant past that helps him discover the true reason behind his creative and emotional torment.
