Synopsis

Tumbleweed provides commentary on a way of life in a small Texas town that is in transition. The world outside of it is quickly pouring in and the fight between the immovable object and the unstoppable force sparks when two women come to town. One, the wandering wind, a stranger who loves nothing more than stirring up trouble and watching the results. The other, returns to her home more a stranger than family who tries to take root but fights the urge to stay. The people who make up the town have both good and honorable and greed and opportunist. Tumbleweed is a look under the microscope of a smaller and more intimate setting which still has all the ingredients there are for people - conflict, strife and heart and soul. As a result, the focus rests on one overall family's struggle to make sense or plead ignorance to what is right and what is wrong. Visuals of older structures, traditions, dust and shadow add to the uncertainty that looms over the town and its people; the uncertainty of their livelihood as well as their morals and finding that in 1997 at least, that the world outside has come in and one must make peace with it or battle it to the very end or something in between.
