About the film . . .

"Homeless veterans find family as they rent rooms from an eighteen-year-old girl struggling to support her thirteen-year-old brother while discovering her voice in Americana music.

At the heart of Lynn Salt's original screenplay "Oildale" are timeless, multigenerational themes of family, healing and sacrifice, themes which hearken back to an earlier more innocent time in America. "Oildale" is a story of what family and extended family means, of the effects of war on human beings and of the basic respect and kindness we find ourselves longing for in an age of increasing sarcasm and cynicism.

Set in the Central Valley of California, where dustbowl refugees from Oklahoma and Texas planted the seeds of a brand new form of American music-a form that would eventually breed singer-songwriters Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and others of the "Bakersfield Sound""Oildale" is an homage to this music, to veterans and to the people of small towns everywhere. Locations, cinematography, pacing and music were all chosen to communicate a collective American nostalgia for a more innocent time and place. The kindness of strangers, self-sacrifice, the unspoken anguish of combat veterans and the universal need to find a sense of "home" all live in the heart of "Oildale".
