About the Film
From a screenplay recently preserved in The Academy©'s permanent Core Collection, Killian & the Comeback Kids is the story of a young mixed race musician forced to return to his rural hometown after an expensive college degree.
A chance encounter with a childhood acquaintance gives the summer new direction.
Together they throw together a rag-tag band of other struggling locals for one shot to play a music festival coming to their once prosperous steel town.
Armed with only folk-rock, Killian and the band hope to unite the community - - if just for one night.
A little musical at the cross roads of small town America and a burgeoning youth culture only just beginning to find its voice.
