In this contemporary Western set in Sonoma County, two powerful, yet deeply troubled women—refugees from political and personal trauma—flee a past that haunts them. Their very differences open them up to a new vision of themselves, as not only survivors, but as heroes capable even of a thrilling shoot-out in the name of outlaw justice. Redemption Trail stars LisaGay Hamilton, Lily Rabe and Hamish Linklater. The film made its world premiere at the 2013 Mill Valley Film Festival.
