SYNOPSIS

 

THE LAST DAYS OF BUSTER DRUMWRIGHT is a tale of murder, revenge and redemption.

It's the late 1930s in the rural community of Trammel, Tennessee. A drifter named Ocie Hedgepath returns to his hometown after learning of the vicious and brutal murders of his sister and her infant son.

To exact revenge for his sister and defend his family's name, he pretends to be a preacher in order to get inside the jail cell of the man who has confessed to the crimes. Somehow, he will knife or strangle the killer – an evil sociopath known as Buster Drumwright.

But several obstacles stand in his way:  Buster is locked up awaiting his lawful hanging in three days. A sheriff’s deputy is guarding him. And an angry mob is threatening to rush the jail, overpower the deputy and kill Buster before he is hanged.

Racing against time, Ocie must convincingly portray a preacher, gain the prisoner's trust, and avenge his sister's murder.
