One Fall

Set in the rustic Midwestern town of One Fall, the film tells the story of a man, James (Marcus Dean Fuller), who miraculously survived a horrific fall from a spectacular 200 foot-high cliff and was never heard from again. However, three years after vanishing James chooses to return to his hometown of One Fall — but he returns a changed man. For an incomprehensible reason James has developed supernatural healing abilities since the fall. He must decide whether to use his abilities to help the ones he once turned his back on, or to continue running from his mysterious past.


Becky and Sandra aren’t the best of friends. Sandra is a middle-aged manager at a fast-food restaurant; Becky is a teenaged counter girl who really needs the job. One stressful day (too many customers and too little bacon), a police officer calls, accusing Becky of stealing money from a customer’s purse, which she vehemently denies. Sandra, overwhelmed by her managerial responsibilities, complies with the officer’s orders to detain Becky. This choice begins a nightmare that tragically blurs the lines between expedience and prudence, legality and reason.

When her Great Aunt Vera injures herself, Dora volunteers to help and travels to Vera’s snowy estate. The last thing the venerable Vera wants is a caretaker, and the last thing Dora wants is to be bored and isolated.

She spends more and more time with a colorful group of locals, until she uncovers Vera’s hidden past, leading the two women a much stronger bond. Much to their surprise, Vera helps Dora through her poetic “muddle,” and Dora discovers her own unique voice while Vera rediscovers hers. [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW Film Festival]
