About this show

BALLAD HUNTER is a full-length drama set in 1937 on an isolated Appalachian mountain in Virginia. Struggling to survive, three generations of women become convinced they are cursed when everything around them mysteriously starts to die. To make matters worse, F.D.R.'s New Deal reaches an unwelcome arm into this mysterious land in the person of an idealistic stranger from the Rural Electrification Administration, who comes to modernize the mountain with electricity and break the women's chain of superstition and guilt.
