From Stephen Gyllenhaal, the award-winning director of Paris Trout
, comes this powerful adaptation of best-selling author Ann Patchett's New York Times Notable Book, The Patron Saint of Liars
. Emmy-winner Dana Delany (China Beach
), stars as Rose, a desperate expectant woman who leaves her husband and takes refuge in a remote Kentucky shelter for unwed pregnant women. Rose begins a new life, raising her daughter and marrying the shelter's compassionate handyman, Son (Clancy Brown, The Shawshank Redemption
). But when Rose's first husband finally tracks her down, she must make the agonizing decision whether to flee her past once again. Academy Award-winner Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
) costars as a reclusive neighbor whose life was miraculously saved as a child by the healing waters of a spring on her property. The spring has long since dried up, and it will take another miracle to keep Rose and her new family together.
