Powerful, compassionate and urgent, 2,000 Feet Away tells a gripping story about reasonable laws with terrible consequences and the price we pay for safety at any cost. Read More >

Eldon, Iowa is a tiny community in the heartland of America. Its Deputy Sheriff is charged with enforcing the new state law banning sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of schools, parks, bus stops, public libraries, or anywhere else children may gather.

When The Deputy is compelled to evict his neighbours’ son the new law hits home. Over the course of this single weekend, fear and intolerance swell in Eldon and the two men are thrown together to discover that there is nowhere in this vast landscape for Iowa’s outcasts to go.

Powerful, compassionate and urgent, 2,000 Feet Away tells a gripping story about reasonable laws with terrible consequences and the price we pay for safety at any cost.
