In 1958, a dark cloud passed over Stony Ford, Virginia, and it just wouldn’t leave. First, the big furniture factory closed down, putting most of the townsfolk out of work. Then, after a tragic car wreck, the Stony Ford High School Eagles wrestling team disbanded. The county, in its naïveté, cast more gloom on the town when it shut down the high school. What else could possibly go wrong?
The people of Stony Ford have everything to lose, which is why they band together to save their sleepy town from folding up shop. With the lack of jobs and lack of money, it is time to be neighborly. With the remnant of death and lost youth floating over the rolling hills, it’s time to share compassion and hope. But is it possible to bring spirit back to Stony Ford, when everything seems so lost?
It’s been said that the Promised Land lies on the other side of a wilderness. Stony Ford has wandered in the wilderness long enough. The townspeople now seek their Promised Land in order to bring life back to the town they love. Will the Stony Ford High School Eagles ever fly again? It’s up to the townsfolk and their ingenuity, heart, and faith that dark clouds will eventually give way to sun.
