Raceland is the story of Blake and Lloyd, two old friends from the bayou. As kids they were thick as thieves and had the kind of close friendship that songs are written about. After being separated for a number of years, they’ve rekindled their friendship anew, present day.
During a day of fishing, Lloyd is tragically injured and Blake steps up to nurse him back to health. It’s during their concentrated time alone together that they realize the love they had for each other back when they were kids, did not disappear… it’s just buried under years of social cues and macho veneer.
As men from rural America, they’re in unfamiliar territory and finding a way to reconcile the feelings they have for each other, as altruistic as they are, is a difficult and uncomfortable journey requiring patience and courage. It’s an opportunity to take an unvarnished look into the true heart of men.
