The Evening Hour Plot Summary and Synopsis

The autumnal mountains of southern Appalachia hold a haunting power within which Cole Freeman (Philip Ettinger FIRST REFORMED), maintains an uneasy equilibrium, looking after the old and infirm in the community while selling their excess painkillers to local addicts to help make ends meet. But when an old friend, Terry Rose (Cosmo Jarvis, LADY MACBETH), returns with dangerous new plans that threaten the fragile balance Cole has crafted amidst the addiction, economic stress and environmental devastation that have his declining mining town in a stranglehold, his world and identity are thrown into deep disarray. Life is pushed even further out of balance by the sudden homecoming of Cole’s estranged mother, Ruby (Lili Taylor, THE CONJURING), increasing conflict with the region’s true drug dealer, Everett (Marc Menchaca, OZARK, THE OUTSIDER) and shifting relationships with two local women: Charlotte (Stacy Martin, NYMPHOMANIAC) and Lacy (Kerry Bishé, ARGO). Faced with an impossible set of choices and intensifying pressure from all sides, Cole soon decides that he has to take action to save the tight-knit fabric of family, friendship, land and history that binds everything and everyone he loves.
