Lone Star Spirits is an off-beat, fast-paced comedy with hairpin turns

Marley is hoping for a quick trip home to the dwindling Texas town where she grew up

But she and her hipster fiancé, Ben, are in for more than they bargained for

Upon entering her estranged father's liquor store, she's immediately set upon by Drew, her football hero ex-boyfriend, who's looking to relight a romance with the only girl he's never cheated on

Then there's Jessica, the former classmate and current single mom looking to drag Marley into a two-woman bachelorette party

Marley finally manages to reveal to her father the real reason for her visit

But things are further complicated by the ghost of the bear-wrestling pioneer who used to live in the store

And who Marley's father and Drew speak to on a daily basis ...

An hilarious and sympathetic look at family, spirituality, those who stay and those who leave their hometowns

And the ghosts that haunt us either way

Runs about 80 minutes
