Evocative period music weaves through Polk County, which charts the passions and poetry of sawmill camp workers deep in the woods of central Florida - their loves and loyalties, their brawls and betrayals. Authentic and joyous, it's a deeply affectionate portrait of a bayou people and the musical ties that bind them.
