REEL ROCK: United States of Joe's


In rural Utah, a valley of world-class bouldering is nestled among of conservative community of Mormons, cowboys and coal miners. When a ragged band of punk rock climbers shows up, the two cultures inevitably clash. After years of antagonism, a group of climbers work with locals to build a more harmonious future. But in this divided era, is that even possible?
