BLACK HILLS GOLD

SCREENPLAY (FEATURE FILM)

Executive V.P. Sheila Stevens is focused on one main thing in life - running her Minneapolis based advertising agency and making sure it stays successful. That's all she focuses on, and calling her a workaholic would be an understatement. Everybody knows this about her, especially her mom Marilyn, who tries to get her out of the office as much as she can. When Marilyn suggested they take a well-deserved vacation together to meet new people, Sheila thinks her mom is crazy. When she finds out Marilyn booked them on a motorcoach vacation trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota - she’s convinced her mom is crazy, and it’ll be a disaster.

With a cast of outrageous characters that include a chain-smoking wisecracker, and two beer-boozer buddies that’ll do anything to stay away from their slot machine addicted wives, Sheila discovers the trip will at least be entertaining. It soon turns surprisingly interesting when she meets the attractive J.T. Williams, who’s not the typical motorcoach driver you’d normally see. J.T. and his sister Shelly work as tour guides for the family business, and J.T. jumps at the opportunity to head to the Black Hills, where his family owns a vacation cabin just outside the historic City of Deadwood.

While J.T. might drive a motorcoach for a living, his true passion is writing and performing music. He takes his guitar with him wherever he goes, and the saloons of Deadwood are the perfect place for him to showcase his talent. With a strong base of friends in the area, when J.T. is performing - there's sure to be a big party going on. When he's not performing though, he takes full advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings the Black Hills have to offer, with his new friend Sheila in tow. J.T. does his best as Sheila’s personal tour guide, and takes her on a few adventures she’s never experienced before, as he tries to show her how great life can be outside of the office. While Sheila in turn finds out about the amazing musical talent J.T. possesses, and she tries to help him realize the unlimited potential she sees in him. With the help of the beautiful Black Hills and a group of newly formed friends, Sheila’s once disastrous vacation soon turns into an adventure she’ll never forget.
