After the suicide of Johnny Cash's former manager, Saul Holiff, his estranged son, Jonathan Holiff, returns home. There, Jonathan learns from his mother that his father's personal records exist in storage. As Jonathan searches through them, he discovers much about his father's life of deferred dreams in London, Ontario until he became the manager of Johnny Cash. From there, Jonathan learns of his father's hectic life managing the erratic country star with his personal demons and moods and how the material success came with a profound cost of its own for Saul.

Before there was Johnny and June, there was Johnny and Saul, A non-fiction 'Walk The Line"

You get a strong whiff of what it must have been like to be Johnny Cash, or his exasperated manager, from this film. It would make a good companion piece to "Walk the Line.

It's good that Holiff wants to unlock this puzzle, but Cash is so compelling a figure that he is ultimately the only character we truly care about.

This has the potential to be dreadfully maudlin stuff, but the film is too damn interesting to be maudlin.
