Feature film

Joey lives a quiet life in a small Pennsylvanian town where she works at an ice cream stand and just waits for life to happen. She pursues a military career but meets the somewhat older Rayna along the way and falls in love. To complicate matters, Rayna is married to a long haul trucker and has two kids, so she comes with baggage. As Joey gets more and more involved with Rayna, she struggles to judge her own decisions. 'AWOL' builds from the director’s award-winning short film and is an entertaining drama with an interesting depiction of rural life in America.
