Following the death of his grandfather, Cal Melbourne (Michael Ridley) finds himself at a critical crossroads: fight to save the land and farm that raised him, or let it go and pursue a life uncharted and, up until now, unknown to him.
Set against the vast plains and farmlands of Iowa, Cal’s quiet but burning conflict pulls several of his loved ones and community members into his orbit. And all the while, he comes to grips with the complexities of his youth, loss, the reaches of his ambitions, and his strength as a single father to his young son.
In her feature directorial debut,Marissa Vonn crafts an intimate and blistering portrait of determination, apprehension, and grief as Cal makes peace with the things and people he’s lost, the future he thought he’d inherit, and embraces the newness of life ahead.
For one night only, Knee High premiers at the Varsity Cinema! Watch the movie alongside the cast and crew and enjoy a Q&A with come of the people responsible for making it.
