Fall Away Film

On the verge of being discovered, the lead singer for up-and-coming country folk band "65 Home" dies violently in a back alley. We follow the friends and lovers of 'Handsome Jake' as they try to come to terms with the singer's untimely death. As the band travels to Nashville to honor his passing, we discover that there are many Jake's - the brother, the lover, the poet, the liar and the cruel manipulator.

Everyone knows a different side of this man and the conflicted and seemingly contradictory aspects of his life. Torn between his personal and professional relationship with his co-writer Mel and their unborn child, committed to his affair with his secret love John, determined to make it big at all costs - Jake is destined for greatness and taken from us all too soon. But by whom? And why?
