The film features an original song by Bono and Nelson, Where The Shadow Falls, marking the first collaboration between the artists.
“It is very easy these days for independent films to get overlooked,” Bono said. “The uniqueness of Lian’s vision in telling this very simple story, reflects the beautiful complexity of who Willie Nelson is… what makes him the fabric of this country… his connection to people and his ability to tell a story just by standing still.”
