Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, The Vets
From the mind of Stephen King and the music of John Mellencamp, "GHOST BROTHERS of Darkland County" takes the audience on a haunting tale filled with fraternal love, lust, jealousy, and revenge. The story goes that Joe McCandless saw his two older brothers battle over a girl which ended in the unfortunate deaths of all three. Now as an adult, with two boys of his own, he's watching an all too similar scenario play out before his eyes. Only one person knows exactly what happened the night of the tragedy. Will Joe bring himself to tell the truth in time to save his own sons? Find out whether the ghosts left behind will help him-or tear the McCandless family apart forever. http://www.vmari.com/
