Dr. Gibbs' big-city attitude quickly clashes against the laid back ways of the small community, forcing him to deal with his suppressed grief, while finding a way to reconnect with his son. With the support of the town's mayor, Terry Hudson (Bellamy Young, “Mission Impossible III”) and her daughter, Christina (Channing Nichols, “Gilmore Girls”), Dr. Gibbs discovers more to the mountain life than he could have ever expected. With an astounding supporting cast including Joshua Leonard ("Blair Witch Project"), Amber Benson ("Buffy: The Vampire Slayer"), Mickey Jones ("Sling Blade") and Edie McClurg ("Ferris Bueller's Day Off"), “Simple Things” is sure to inspire audiences worldwide.
