An aspiring country singer and her younger brother befriend three homeless veterans who, in turn, help the siblings in ways they would not have imagined. Thus begins “Oildale,” a new independent motion picture about the emotional and financial challenges often faced by veterans after they return home from war.

The film, directed by David Mueller and written by Lynn Salt, had its sold-out world premiere to a 1500-seat crowd in Bakersfield, CA, on March 30, 2019. The premiere and encore raised funds for the Wounded Heroes Fund of Kern County to provide support and appreciation for veterans returning to civilian life.

As part of their Heartland Tour across America, the filmmakers are donating half of all ticket proceeds to local organizations that provide supportive services to veterans.
