Homestate | USA | Drama | David Hickey | 85 min
presented by Orchard Theater of Texas (OTX)

NORTH TEXAS PREMIERE

'Homestate' depicts a week in the life of a seemingly run-of-the-mill family. Harvey struggles to keep his new business afloat, at any cost, amidst the uncertain economy. Crystal is a full-time mom who keeps Pearl, their 10 year old daughter, on schedule and manages the household responsibilities. When Josh, Crystal’s troubled brother, shows up with no place to go, the balance of their routine is thrown into disarray. This unexpected addition to the family sets off a series of events that exposes underlying issues, inadequacies and suspicions which threaten the foundation of their family ties.
