Against the odds, the American Dream endures in small towns like Rich Hill, Missouri — but as this poetic, poignant doc makes clear, life is anything but easy for teenage boys growing up in a place where the tracks don’t seem to have a "right" side.

Winner: Grand Jury Prize for Documentary, Sundance Film Festival
