‘The Dust Storm‘, is an upcoming romantic drama starring Colin O’Donoghue (“Once Upon A Time”) and Kristen Gutoskie (“The Vampire Diaries”).
Brennan (O’Donoghue), is a broken down musician currently on a business trip to Nashville for a soul-sucking cooperation, who finds himself reunited with Nora (Gutoskie), the girl who crushed his heart a decade prior. Now, surrounded by the city’s music scene, a life-changing romance is reborn and challenged while answering the question “what happens if the one who got away comes back?”
Every great artist has a story in this film, music is an expression of the pain the artist is going through. In the beginning of every relationship, the days aren’t long enough, you can’t get enough of each other, then passion turns to hate and love turns to mistrust, but at the end of the day, we have to learn to look at ourselves for happiness instead of others for enjoyment.
O’Donoghue performs three original songs in the film, which also features Chris Carmack (“Nashville”) and Jim O’Heir (“Parks And Recreation”).
The film will be released on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant, DVD and Vimeo on Demand on December 13, 2016. It will also be released on InDemand (Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Optimum) on January 10, 2017.
The love scenes are wonderful, the music is inspiring and plot-line is encouraging!
