Hoping to meet the love of her life and bring home a father for her boys, she frequents a depressing, weekly mixer for the towns aging singles set. Meanwhile, Marc is desperate to lose his virginity, and spends his days working at a used car lot. And his brother Stephen, in the throes of sexual discovery, becomes infatuated with his schoolteacher while struggling to win the approval of a group of peers who adamantly detest her.

Heaven + Earth + Joe Davis, directed by Peter Sasowsky won the Jury award for Best Documentary.  The film takes the viewer with Joe Davis,a peg-legged artist and motorcycle mechanic from Mississippi, around the world and into the visual and philosophical landscape of his art.
