NORTH STAR

a short film by  P.J. Palmer 

Produced with support from (twenty)2 vision, a 501(c)3 charitable foundation.

All contributions to NORTH STAR are tax deductible. 

A rural rancher and his ailing husband, struggling against poverty and isolation, make a heartbreaking decision in order to preserve the dignity of their marriage. 

“It shows just how powerful love can be.”

"Really excels with its careful grasp on what makes stories important: The human component."

"It was truly as successful as BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN” 

"A terrifically written dramatic short film that excels through the quiet intimacy and gravitas that it lends its characters. The story itself is a deceptively simple dissection of loss and love."

"A whisper-voiced commentary on current events while remaining subtle and true to its characters”
