All Roads Lead
St. Louis-area native Peter Bolte – a graduate of Webster U. – returns to his home turf for “All Roads Lead,” which was shot here and in Pinckneyville, Ill., and features local cast and crew. After discovering lost footage of a raging car fire that took the lives of two young girls, a group of filmmakers decides to investigate the stories of those involved. Their journey leads them from the concrete jungle of New York City to the rural countryside of the Midwest. In the small Illinois town of Colston, they interview and befriend residents touched by the tragic event. Hard workers struggling through trying times, the townsfolk appear to draw strength from the caring support of their community. However, as the filmmakers dig deeper, a darker side of Colston begins to emerge, and it becomes evident that the girls’ death may be more than an accident. As an ominous cloud of deceit begins to hover over the interviewing process, the filmmakers must decide how to expose the truth and protect themselves.
