When small town drifter Sammy drives into town in search of his next cold beer and the bunch that'll have him, he gets a lot more than he bargained for. Food and lodging and the possibility of a better future thanks to redheaded Jamalee and her brother Jason who dream of hitting the big time. But breaks aren’t easy to come by if you live in Venus Holler. Finding themselves powerless against the forces of corruption and prejudice, the hardest thing Sammy has to fight are the demons inside his own head.
Love, rage, redemption and revenge - TOMATO RED is an original and moving film about the struggle to get a break and our deep seated need to belong.
