is a ghost story, a murder mystery and a love
story which crosses time. What happens when time
collides? Sadie thinks she's going insane. Edmund's
sure he's being haunted. And Henry,
well Henry's racing daylight.
Told as three short movies RACING DAYLIGHT
is the story of Sadie Stokes (MELISSA
LEO) who's returned to the family farm
to care for her catatonic Grandma (LECLANCHE
DURAND ). There have always been Stokes
in Cedarsville. Sadie and Grandma are the last.
Sadie's life has been pretty colorless until the
man appears in the mirror calls her "Anna!"
and then fades away. As Sadie takes on the characteristics
of her ancestor, Anna Stokes, she realizes that
they both want the same thing, they both want
Henry (DAVID STRATHAIRN) the
farm's idiosyncratic handyman/civil war junkie.
Only Anna thinks Henry is her long lost Harry
This magical love story of hope and forgiveness
is set against the backdrop of the Hudson River
Valley, with light that glows from the inside
out, and specifically the Shawangunk Ridge; home
to Revolutionary war battles, the Underground
Railroad, Native Americans and Dutch settlers.
