Gesa Power House Theatre presents a screening of the award-winning independent film Two Ways Home on Friday, March 19 at 7:00PM with an encore screening on Wednesday, March 24 at 7:00PM.
Kathy is sentenced to a prison term, only to discover that her erratic actions were motivated by her bipolar disorder. Once diagnosed and treated with medication, her sentence is commuted and she is released back into the community. Upon returning to her hometown in rural Iowa to reconcile with her estranged 12-year-old daughter, she discovers that her grandfather suffered a heart attack. Conflict with her family sets her on a course to free her irascible grandfather from a nursing home and live his last days out on his farm. As she struggles to maintain balance with her condition, complications with her daughter’s well-being and her grandfather’s health test her sense of self-worth to the limit. Through self-acceptance and perseverance, she forges unexpected new levels of love and heroism.
Two Ways Home stars Tanna Frederick (Kathy), Tom Bower (Walter), Joel West (Junior), and Rylie Behr (Cori). The film is directed by award-winning director Ron Vignone, whose filmmaking revolves around issues that are deeply personal and important in his life. All of the cast and crew were dedicated to making a story of depth and subtlety that revolves around a character who wrestles with the need for connection with her family, and the disconnect from her wavering mental health. The film received support from NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), the Breaking the Chains Foundation, and the Methodist Dallas Medical Center.
“Wears its Indie cred proudly…pulls no punches while compassionately exploring life with mental illness.”
Bradley Gibson, Filmthreat
