The Hole In The Fence by Dave Stewart & Ringo Starr
An imaginative story with original music by Dave Stewart & Ringo Starr about a group of small town high school outcasts in the backwaters of Virginia who use their love of country music to explore and connect with one another as they go on an adventure beyond “the hole in the fence” – discovering disturbing corruption in their home town. This is an uplifting story about the power of music to provide healing in the past, present, and future.
